Audio: Taming the Violence of Faith

Given the shootings in Arizona, it’s timely to publish a link to the audio for Jay Stuart Snelson‘s talk at our Orange County, CA supper club.

(The name of the club is the Karl Hess Community Technology Forum. Karl Hess was a political speechwriter for Barry Goldwater who became a noted Libertarian activist. Karl was also known for promoting off-grid renewable energy, housing and food systems. Congratulations to Make Magazine‘s Green Project Winner: The Global Village Construction Set. The GVCS leader is a fan of the appropriate technology work as described by Karl Hess and I support their project.)

The audio mp3 file khc2010nov29.mp3 is of Jay Stuart Snelson‘s talk at the Karl Hess Community Technology Forum Nov. 29, 2010. I recorded it with the iTalk app on my iPod Touch and did what I could in Audacity and Levelator. Howard Hinman was MC. He is heard bringing the club to order and providing the speaker introduction.

A film released this year, Countdown To Zero, by the makers of An Inconvenient Truth and Food, Inc., confirms Jay Stuart Snelson’s assertion that nuclear weapons are still a very significant threat even if supposedly “the Cold War is over.”

Here’s the trailer for Countdown To Zero at YouTube.
