At this historic Independent Institute event, renowned author Gore Vidal rejects the blind "patriotism" expected by government officials and the mainstream media, and investigates U.S. foreign policy throughout recent history, showing how it has contributed to the terrorist crisis. With his famous wit and insight, Vidal also demonstrates the ways in which the "War on Terrorism" is being used to curtail civil liberties, shred the Bill of Rights, and foster a more dangerous world. Moderated by Lewis H. Lapham (Editor, "Harper's Magazine"), the program also includes a panel of scholars, Barton J. Bernstein (Professor of History, Stanford University), Robert Higgs (Senior Fellow in Political Economy, Independent Institute), and Thomas Gale Moore (Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution).
