People like to talk good about Gandhi but don't like to follow him. Say something against Gandhi in this country and the mob is ready to kill you ( this is very much against what Gandhi said or taught). So, it doesn't really make any difference if there's another piece of his recording available, or perhaps the Americans can use it better than the Indians...

If you play it backwards he gives a pretty chilling overview of the following 50 years of the Cold War as well as the results of presidential elections through 2080.
