Radio Philosophy History Environment/Nature May 2, Tuesday, 9:05pm. 99.1 FM. CBC Radio 1 - Ideas - Liberty Guiding the People: The Rise of the Extreme Right in France, Part 2. Quote: "The famous painting by Delacroix shows a triumphant Liberté, with a French flag, urging her army towards us, the viewers. We can either join them, or flee. The painting celebrates the July revolution of 1830, and since then Liberté herself has become an enduring icon of France. As the French pick a new president, it's the extreme right and the Front National with their candidate Marine Le Pen, which might well lead the French out of Europe and shut the door to immigrants. The second of Philip Coulter's three-part series. Part 3 airs Friday, May 5." Info: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/features/schedule
