This month's "In-Depth" featured writer Melanie Phillips and will be repeated tonight at Midnight EDT on C-Span2. Three hours of interesting commentary and replies to viewers by a wise and thoughtful woman who, for example, provides a spot-on defense of traditional marriage as being a "unique fusing" of two individuals which is necessary for society because it is the way "we produce humanity", yet partially blames traditional marriage for the current drive for gay-marriage because it has become merely a contractual, legal arrangement in many people's minds. Phillips is concerned with facts, but even more with how facts get hidden and distorted to result in some of the bizarre notions about today. She says, "the more people seem to idealize their intellect and to believe that they're intellectually superior, the more divorced from reality they seem to become". Great viewing.
Thanks for the head-up. Will definitely watch.
Can one get C-Span on the net? or is there an audio of this available?
They have most of their programs archived at their web site - C-Span.org - not sure if this one this there yet or not but it probably will be eventually......
