It`s an old interview from 2007, but it`s still interesting and worth a watch.

"we've also been the biggest bully as well. So that analogy doesn`t fit."

On the contrary, it`s exactly what I meant by "You`re damned if you do and you`re damned if you don`t." Either you step up for those who are catching hell and in turn get branded a bully, or leave them to get whaled on and lose everyone`s respect for not weighing in in a crisis.

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." -Edmund Burke

Good to see we agree on Hitch`s main point in the end.

There is no way you can placate Islamism and maintain your freedoms is the main point Hitch builds to in the latter part.

As for the role of a superpower: When bullies start picking on the weaker kids everyone looks to the biggest kid in school to sort them out. You're damned if you do and damned if you don`t. So you may as well be damned for bringing freedom and democracy, and not for giving in to coercion and oppression.


First of all we maybe the biggest kid school but we`ve also been the biggest bully as well. So that analogy doesn`t fit, as we`ve spreading tyranny far more than democracy. Secondly, even if we really were everyone`s hero then just like your typical bully he`s only going to meaner when a third party gets involved.
