1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
As Mr. McKinley introduces the question, "President Bush doesn't talk much about drugs any more [having made them a year and a half earlier the centerpiece of a prime-time televised speech] and his first drug czar, William Bennett, has wandered off, and so has the attention of most Americans. ...But unlike that other war [in the Persian Gulf] the drug war goes on." From Mr. Rangel's perspective, "If I thought for one moment that you [the affirmative side] were sincere about this, I would ask you to take a look at the children that are born addicted to drugs; to talk about those that find themselves in the emergency wards, if you will, Doctor, with the illnesses that are attributed to this." At times the participants are coming from different universes (Voth: "Does illness increase or decrease a person's freedom?" Glasser: "... I don't think a person who is sick is more or less free against the government."), but the various personalities still bring life to this much-discussed topic. --Summary by Firing Line staff

Firing line : resolved : that political correctness is a menace and a bore ( visu )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"Anyone who has followed the political-correctness debate knows" as Michael Kinsley puts it, "that, by reputation at least, we are at the heart of the beast. It was here at the University of Pennsylvania last year that a white freshman was charged with racial harassment for calling a group of black women 'water buffalo.'" It was also here, Mr. Buckley reminds us, that a group of students stole and destroyed copies of a student newspaper that carried an op-ed piece they disagreed with. But these cases make Penn far from atypical in the modern academic world, and Senator Moseley-Braun had recently declared that "a fundamental right is the freedom from insult." Mr. Green starts by welcoming "any debate which forces conservative Republicans to become ACLUers in defense of the First Amendment." Today's debaters are occasionally a bit foggy over hypotheticals, but there are some fine exchanges. Professor Linda Greene: "I think what we need to do is not to focus on calling each other racist or sexist, but instead to try to understand how historical racism has affected our lives and consciousness ..." Judge Robert H. Bork: "Is it your understanding, Professor Greene, that you are actually defending political correctness with that statement?" --Summary by Firing Line staff
