  3. Why are transcripts seldom provided for ‘video’ presentations? Since wisdom is to a great extent accrued learning and experience correctly understood and applied, the greatest benefit from hearing from the wisest among us would likely be accrued by people whom presbycusis renders unable to hear the usually pathetic audio stream delivered.

  4. Nota bene:

    Prof. Chomsky says here that President Kennedy’s resolve not to accept the Russian offer over (the hithertoo unknown to him, obsolete) US missile system withdrawal from Turkey was “probably the most horrendous decision in human history.”

    Moreover, he adds:

    “He (JFK) was willing to take a huge risk of destroying the world to establish a principle, the principle is we have the right to threaten anyone with destruction, any way we like; but it’s a unilateral right, & no-one else can threaten us, even to deter a planned invasion ~ and worse still is the lesson that’s been drawn from this. Kennedy is praised for his cool courage under pressure.”

    I was a fretful 15 years old in 1962, and although I was a youthful supporter of Russell’s CND I certainly had no idea, as nobody else did, just how close that crisis brought us to assured oblivion. It surely provides us with a disturbing epiphanal light into the Kennedy mythos.
