Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:

Coming up today we'll have a debate between progressive Historian Michael Parenti (GOD AND HIS DEMONS, DEMOCRACY FOR THE FEW) and Victor Davis Hanson (The Hoover Institution) on U.S. Imperialism. This program was recorded at the Sunbird Conservative conference in Fresno on Saturday, April 17.

The lively debate, supported by progressives and conservatives in Fresno, drew a crowd of several hundred. Parenti argued that the United States is an imperialist nation and that the empire is not good for us or the rest of the world. Hanson said that a powerful America is better than the alternative and that we are spreading democracy throughout the world. (Part two of this program will air tomorrow, August 11th at 1:05PM)
