'Meeting of Minds': Cleopatra, Aquinas, Paine, & Teddy Roosevelt

"Join host Steve Allen as he welcomes Cleopatra, Thomas Aquinas, Thomas Paine, and Theodore Roosevelt to a discussion of questions of enduring significance. Topics include the merits and evils of imperialism, the American Revolution, the possibility of nobility in war, certitude of religious doctrine, and the best form of government. Hear Cleopatra and Aquinas react to the first lines of the Declaration of Independence, Cleopatra defend the rule of divine emperors, and Aquinas comment on Paine’s argument for equality."
