  15. I have loved Nader since I was in college and after listening to this I am so inspired and motivated. I just purchased his book and I’m going to start a Congress Watchdog group. I’ve been asking how can I serve in a larger way and I think this could be the answer I’ve been looking for. Anyone care to join me?

  16. Some people just improve with age.

    Ralph Nader has such a brilliant mind; he starts by reminding us of Cicero’s “freedom is participation in power” and a lucid Ming Dynasty aphorism ~ “to know and not to do is not to know.” Quite so. Effortless doing has only the appearance of inaction. Real doing in the subtle Daoist sense, is a pure will exercising its natural (necessary) function unhampered by false expectations of “success.”

    Then he goes on to extol the virtues of concentration (Newton,) imagination (Blake) and lastly (from Einstein) curiosity.

    He modestly and succinctly educates us about the fundamental morality of functional government and constitutional ethics. His focus and clarity is almost stupefying in its elegance and directness.

    The difference between him and so many know-it-all ‘tenured’ pundits, those ‘I’m so published & popular’ celebrity addicts and ‘think-tank’ poolside cheerleaders who are a dime a dozen, is that he actually walks the talk. He has spent his life freely participating in power, acting upon knowledge. What a superb asset to the USA he is.

    So, alright; “what’s Gran’ma and Grandpa going to say to that nine year-old?”

    This is surely the most encouraging political lecture I’ve heard or even heard about, probably ever; a complete how-to guide to citizen participation and civic initiatives. What’s more this is a talk that could only happen in the United States.

    So, what’s your expectation level folks?
