Wow- so glad to hear you speak out on that. You're right- he (or Zinn, Hedges, Cornell West, etc) is not that obtuse. He is intimidated. It is, as you suggest, pretty mind-bending though. They seem to go about their day thinking they are pretty righteous, clear-thinking dudes. To be fair, if ...Read more
