Great writing at 40:37..

"Mankind is presented as a coward; only winners are brave. In addition, there are no gifts; there are only prizes."

Also, there HAS to be a better way of separating the un-deceased Chomsky's name from the first part of that sentence! Way to wake me up...

Yeah, how about:

"find solace and inspiration in the lucid voices of Noam Chomsky and the recently departed John Berger"

Yipes - sorry Metafilter! I was going by the running order of the speakers and Berger is arguably top of the bill.

um... how about

"cultural critic John Berger (recently departed) and leading intellectual Noam Chomsky"

Or perhaps the mods could delete and I'll reword it (with bonus links?)

Thank you for this post, at least Noam Chomsky knows what is going on, and is willing to discuss it. It is interesting those huge, secretly crafted, trade agreements, are demons in his world.
