On any given day we're lied to from 10 to 200 times, and the clues to detect those lie can be subtle and counter-intuitive. Pamela Meyer, author of Liespotting, shows the manners and "hotspots" used by those trained to recognize deception -- and she argues honesty is a value worth preserving.

La propriété intellectuelle, par Albert Jacquard

Albert Jacquard "rebâtir une société humaine sans compétition"

"L'important est d'arriver à vivre ensemble avec des éthiques différentes, de collaborer les uns avec les autres", nous dit Albert Jacquard, lauréat du Prix de l'Ethique 2009 de La Lettre du Cadre Territorial. Cela suppose qu'il y ait un "corps dur", un diamant central auquel tous les hommes adhère du point de vue de la morale. "Cela peut paraître inaccessible, mais ça ne l'est pas puisque qu'il y a 60 ans, nous avons défini ce qui est bien et mal dans les rapports des humaines entre eux. Appliquer cette déclaration serait déjà un progrès énorme par rapport à la situation actuelle".

"Pour des raisons d'efficacité, regrette-t-il, nos sociétés en pointe ont basé leur recherche d'efficacité sur la compétition. On nous fait croire que l'important dans la vie, c'est de lutter et de gagner. Or pour moi, un gagnant est un fabriquant de perdants. Il faut donc rebâtir une société humaine où la compétition sera éliminée; je n'ai pas à être plus fort que l'autre, j'ai à être plus fort que moi."

College Conspiracy

Chris Hedges: "This one could take them all down."

Chris Hedges: "What happens is in all of these movements ... the foot soldiers of the elite -- the blue uniformed police, the mechanisms of control -- finally don't want to impede the movement and at that point the power elite is left defenseless ... the only thing I can say having been in the middle of similar movements is that this one is real, and this one could take them all down ... I can guarantee you that huge segments of those blue uniformed police sympathize with everything that you're doing." -- Pulitzer Prize winner Chris Hedges brings his 20 years of experience as a war correspondent, having covered movements and revolutions throughout the the world, to the discussion.

2012 - A Message of Hope

Sita Sings the Blues

"Sita Sings the Blues" is based on the Hindu epic "The Ramayana". Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina Paley is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by email. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Ramayana. Set to the 1920's jazz vocals of torch singer Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as "the Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told." It is written, directed, produced and animated by American artist Nina Paley.
