New World Notes News
Vol. 2, No. 47 -- December 1, 2009
This week in New World Notes, #91 (December 1, 2009):
Joyce Malcolm discusses,
Is There a Right of Self-Defense?
-- The U.S. vs. the U.K.
Noted historian and legal scholar Joyce Lee Malcolm discusses the diverging English and American views of the ancient English right on which the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is based--the right of self-defense.
This legal right has been preserved in the United States but has largely been abolished in the United Kingdom. Malcolm's stories of the practical effects in England of this change fascinated her audience. Would you believe a homeowner jailed for holding a toy gun on burglars?
This program features the first two-thirds of a public lecture Malcolm delivered at the University of Hartford on October 7, recorded & lightly edited by yours, truly. The final third was included in installment #90, broadcast last week. You can listen to or download #90 (64 kbps mp3) at any time.
Next week: selections from Michael Parenti's lecture, "Political Liberties and Economic Democracy," recorded live on November 4.
