One of the problems of having "mass media" is that you can so often tune into radio or tv and hear a person (and his interviewer) saying nothing of substance.

And as I get older, I find it harder and harder to form succinct paragraphs proposing specific points or theses, followed by well-presented data supporting or refuting those theses.

Thus, when you post a video of several minutes' length, my initial response is to skip it entirely or listen to it with my own prejudices up front, expecting a bunch of "spin."

This woman is articulate, well-reasoned and worth listening to, "in my humble opinion."

She makes a well-argued case that is meanigful to our current public discourse.

It makes me wonder if all that other "bullsh**" we hear on the airwaves is (partially) just to drown out the real, meaningful discoure such as this.

Thanks for the video.

You're welcome. I was immediately drawn into what she was saying and would not have failed to hear her through all the way.

There are some people who are just compelling for some reason. Selflessness, sincerity in trying to get at the truth of the matter, or absence of ego perhaps. Marcus Aurelius and Matthew Arnold had an instant appeal to me for these reasons, perhaps. I think I sensed a temperamental similarity. Tom Jones and The Gulag Archipelago similarly compelling to me. The Confucians spoke of "human heartedness." I don't know how to define that adequately, but I know it when I see it.
