Special thanks to Anthony Lawson for editing the program.

(ASPEN, Colo.) - This set of six video clips covers an almost taboo controversy to do with freedom of speech.

In the discussion, I stress the ethical and logical need for history to be open to revision.

Participants were Gilad Atzmon, Harvie Branscome, who was the program Moderator, Steve Kaufman the founder and director of Access Roaring Fork ( and Michael Conniff of KUUR-FM in Aspen, Colorado.

Please note: The original program was just under one hour, and has been edited into six parts, and a few pauses, repetitions and hesitations have been removed.

The editing has not in any way changed the sense of what any of the speakers said, and the original program can be viewed here:
