Niall Ferguson / Reith lectures

The BBC has an interesting series - Reith lectures. I've listened to all four parts of the last one - by Niall Ferguson. I find it great - especially the last one (the transcript is here) - it discusses the civil and uncivil societies. I find this goes to the core of the current problems in the post-soviet societies where the the state has long ago replaced the civil society and we basically have strangers living next to each other.
