"No army can be compared with the power of an idea whose time has come." French writer Victor Hugo understood that ideas born at a proper time produce ideas shattering the universe, ideas that are doomed to be great. But greatness can be of different nature: great and beautiful, great and ugly, great and scary. A great idea may have all these qualities, thus producing admiration, disgust, or fear. This radio program presents various great ideas.
It is noteworthy that for the first 89 years of its existence, the United States of America, the "self-proclaimed homeland of the free" and the stronghold of democracy, equality and human rights, depended on slave labor.
