This conversation was recorded during the 2019 Aspen Ideas Festival in Aspen, Colorado....

2012 Aspen Ideas Clip from 'Arab Spring: 18 Months Later'. Where are we 18 months in? Could an observer of the Arab World two years ago have envisioned a presidential election in Egypt with a Muslim Brotherhood candidate winning in the presidency, a state of civil war in Syria, an overthrown dictatorship in Tunisia, Muammar Gaddafi killed? No one predicted what is going on. But more importantly, is the Arab World on a path to democracy? Is it going toward a better future? Or is it hitting...

The civil war in Syria gets bloodier by the day, and the blood is now flowing across borders, drawing in one country and group after another. Egypt is in turmoil. There is unrest in Tunisia, Libya, Jordan, and Bahrain. And, for all of Secretary Kerry's commendable efforts to date, the Arab-Israeli peace process remains a "peace process" in name only. This panel will assess the state of...

As news unfolds about the Navy’s UFO sightings, and as Congress reviews the data, are we closer to answering the age-old question? Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute founder Jill Tarter says as we look up and look out, we must see ourselves from a cosmic perspective, which shows us as all the same — all Earthlings. She illuminates the idea that recognizing our place in...
