Episode 34: Apple Is the Apple of China’s Eye on Its Citizens

May 29, 2021

It’s a curious thing to see corporations like Apple defiantly champion civil liberties in America only to obediently help government authorities squash them in China. But that is precisely what they’ve been doing for decades without any hint of compunction or hypocrisy.

Yet what is truly remarkable is that those corporations can credibly assert that they are only following down the primrose path the US government set in its dealings with China. In other words, it’s not just US corporations but the government itself that is continually bending over backwards to do business with China on its terms.

Is it any wonder, then, that China is telegraphing its intent to wield the kind of power and influence throughout the twenty-first century that America wielded throughout the twentieth - only with a decidedly autocratic style?

Episode 33: Biden’s Foreign Policy ‘A-Team’ Is Failing Him

May 15, 2021

Truth be told, Joe Biden couldn’t do worse on the foreign policy front than Donald Trump if he tried. As it happened, though, he practically cured all the damage  Trump’s policies caused by signing a series of Executive Orders during his first days in office.

May 8, 2021

Every basketball fan worth their salt has debated picks for all-time NBA greats. And no doubt 99.9 percent of them have included LeBron James on their team. That’s why Dr. J was branded everything from hater to heretic for daring to exclude LeBron from his.

As it happens, though, I agree with Dr. J. But, as Paul Harvey might say, listen now for the rest of the story.

Episode 31: Earth Day 2021

The inconvenient truth is that, despite increasing alarms, Earth is not hanging in the balance. This was thrown into reassuring relief just last year. That’s when only a few months of Covid lockdown resulted in clean air and water not seen in years.

This is why I’ve always championed environmental efforts that focus more on respecting, protecting, and conserving Mother Nature than on new technologies to combat climate change. Not to mention the manifest truth that the best way to reduce pollution is to reduce poverty.
