Even though I have heard most if not all of these anecdotes before, it is great to hear him deliver them to this audience. The kids I met this weekend would have loved it. Thanks for posting this.

Jodi - i just read a transcript of the video and I wanted to get your reaction to his attempt to split democracy and capitalism apart? He says something like don't let them blackmail you that when you criticize capitalism you are somehow "against democracy." It seems to me much of your theoretical work has made the case that they are tied together.
