Christopher Hitchens - the wish to be a slave

As you might have guessed, I'm still clearing out my Temp folder. :)

You've probably seen this clip before. I might have posted it myself. Certainly, I've posted excerpts from it, in various YouTube compilations of Christopher Hitchens' speeches.

But it's definitely worth hearing again. And the man himself is no longer with us, so we won't be getting any new speeches, any new debates.

Well, there are many others carrying on where Christopher Hitchens left off. True, they're not Hitchens. He was unique. But we're all unique. So we can enjoy this, remembering the man we've lost, while still recognizing that many other capable and entertaining atheists remain.
