Declaration of Independence: A Blueprint for Reform #FeinWisdom

declOstrolenk speaks with Constitutional Scholar Bruce Fein on the Declaration of Independence and its relevance today. Fein comments that in the rights-centered universe created by the Declaration, the purpose of the government is to secure the rights of the people, and the power to do so is given through the peoples’ consent. However, as transparency in government is largely absent, citizens today lack adequate information to give consent to govern. A liberty-centered universe no longer exists and America is no longer governed by the consent of the people. In this context, the relevance of the Declaration of Independence today is to act as a blueprint for government reform.

Honoring the sacrifices of the Canadian Armed Forces: True Patriot Love Foundation, #ORadio

TruePatriotLoveOstrolenk speaks with Geordie Young, Civilian Team Co-Chair of the True Patriot Love Foundation. Young first discovered the True Patriot Love Foundation after being inspired by the Unbeatable Mind Foundation to search out a cause through which he could contribute to his community. The True Patriot Love Foundation works with veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces by hosting global expeditions, which help bridge the gap between military and civilian communities.

In January 2016, on an expedition Young has helped to organize, a team of civilians and Canadian veterans will hike Mount Vinson, the highest point in Antarctica. Young describes that the purpose of this mission is three-fold: to introduce civilian leaders to veterans and the amble talent and motivation that they bring home, to raise awareness and funds around the cause, and to instill confidence and purpose in veterans, many of whom are recovering from physical injuries.

Great Powers, Great Armies #ORadio


Ostrolenk speaks with Colonel Doug MacGregor on military structures, namely Russia’s and America’s. In addressing the critical questions of military strategy, Colonel MacGregor speaks from the standpoint of Russia on who, where, and when they should fight. Profoundly shaped by WWII, Russia’s military is a unified command that brings to bear all power under Putin’s control. The United States, in contrast, lacks any coherent military structure, intervening on ideology rather than concrete interests, and failing to consider unintended consequences. Great powers retain great armed forces, but not excessive forces, and the current US military mocks a 1940’s structure and Cold War policies. Colonel MacGregor argues it is imperative the United States military be reduced in size, reformed, restructured, and then expanded from a modern foundation.

Independence from our Empire #FeinWisdom

white-house (1)Ostrolenk speaks with Constitutional Scholar Bruce Fein, in the context of America’s Independence Day, on the meaning of liberty. Bruce notes that in many ways we as a country have made enormous strides in ensuring equality. However, the core protection of our liberty – the separation of powers – is being destroyed. Bruce concludes that while we have been able to ensure greater equality in access to power, we’ve failed to guarantee that this power safeguards our liberty.

Second Amendement Limitations #FeinWisdom


Ostrolenk speaks with Constitutional Scholar Bruce Fein on the balance between gun control and the Second Amendment right to bear arms. Bruce notes that the Second Amendment, like every right in the Bill of Rights, has limitations to ensure overall protection of society. Most important, he continues, is focusing on the location, mental stability, and training of individuals, rather than the type of weapons available to citizens.

#FeinWisdom: The Inevitable War with China

chinaOstrolenk speaks with Bruce Fein on US-China relations following a spokesman for the Defense Ministry in China stating that war is inevitable if the US insists on preventing China from expanding its presence in the South China Islands. Under the guise of preventing China from “destabilizing the region,” the United States is again seeking to fight another country’s war. The United States should, Bruce insists, ask itself if it is truly in our national interest to risk our men and women for Japan’s interests.

#FeinWisdom: Using the Criminal Model to Fight Terrorism

Screen Shot 2015-05-15 at 11.02.12 AM (1)Ostrolenk talks to Constitutional Scholar Bruce Fein on the recent rising of the US security threat level, and why America should be using a criminal model, rather than a war model, to fight terrorism. While the criminal model is not flawless, and issues of state sovereignty must be acknowledged, it is far superior to the war model. The war model, in contrast, seeks to scorch the earth as a means of protection, yet Fein argues this ultimately breeds resentment and make us less safe.
