Guest: Michael Collins Piper 

The author of "Final Judgment - The Missing Link in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy" discusses his book and his analysis. Piper diagrams the connections between the leading cast of characters in the plot to kill Kennedy, what he calls the New Orleans nexus, all of whom are mentioned in other books, but takes his analysis a step further, demonstrating how all are linked, directly or indirectly, to a company based in Europe, Permindex, and who and what constitutes Permindex, the secret thread that ties all of the other disparate JFK scenarios together.

Guest: Gilad Atzmon

 
Gilad Atzmon’s talk, The Post Political Condition:  Brexit, Trump and the Rest of Us, is a searing indictment of the new left’s embrace of identity politics and political correctness.  He writes that the freedom to think openly is now within the domain of nostalgia.  Our Western Liberal ‘utopia’ has turned into an Orwellian catastrophe and we the people, are left bewildered and impoverished.
His new book, Being In Time – A Post-Political Manifesto, is a courageous attempt to grasp the intellectual developments that led toward the current dystopia.  It identifies the ideologies that planted identity politics and the tyranny of correctness in our midst.  Gilad Atzmon is a jazz musician and composer, a philosopher and an author.  He is the author of The Wandering Who? – A Study of Jewish Identity Politics.
