Gilad Atzmon - Moral Interventionism & The Decline of the West
October 27, 2011
In the second hour for members, Gilad begins talking about tribalism verses nationalism. He says both of these could be wonderful but the problem comes when celebration is had by the takeover of others. This leads us into a discussion about Jewish lobbyists and war. Then, we talk about organized demonstrations, the passion and the quick forgetfulness. Gilad talks about “moral interventionism” in Libya saying it is being used to deter attention from another agenda. He explains how moral interventionism will create more social unrest and eventually lead to the rise of Islam and decline of the west. Gilad mentions the serious problems on the rise as the west is moving into a service based economy. We’ll explore Milton Friedman’s philosophy of zero government intervention. We end talking about interpreting history, which could mean the past is subject to change.
