The Sith and US Empire

What do Ancient Rome, Revolutionary France, The British Empire, The War Between the States, Nazi Germany, Vietnam, the “election” of Viktor Yushchenko and the war on terrorism have to do with Star Wars?

All will be explained on the Weekend Interview Show, Sat. 4-6 est.

The first hour will be me talking and playing clips, and in the second hour, I’ll be talking with Ludwig von Mises Institute Scholar, Mark Thornton all about it.

(Yes, I know I’m a dork)

Update: Arthur Silbur at The Light of Reason has some words for that dumb sonofapodhoretz over at National Review Online who can’t quite figure out these movies made for 10-year-olds.

Update II: Show’s over. Archives here.
