  11. I am going to have to watch those when roommate is not sleeping, but, I have to say, his book, “War is a Force…” just made me break down crying, seriously….it is a not to be missed book….

    • Thanks, Kyle. This is a very good one. Hedges seems to be very relaxed in this talk. The Q&A starts at 9 minutes or so into Part 3. He talks about many different issues during the Q&A.
