ONE BRAVE MAN - Video Interview with Garry Kasparov

I caught this amazing interview on "Real Time With Bill Maher" the other night. I can tell you I was glued to my TV set, hanging on every intellectual word that came from the brilliant mind of Garry Kasparov the world's chess champion, who is running against Putin in Russia. It was enlightening but also a bit depressing, because there aren't many leaders in this world that could reach the genius of this man. Especially, here in the USA, where, as Chris Mathews (a guest on that particular segment of "Real Time") said after the interview "that was so sophisticated, and this audience was listening to (Kasparov's) every word. Our guys here talk down to us!"
I started thinking about that statement by Hardball's Chris Mathews ... Why do they talk down to us? The answer is clear because I really believe that so many in the voting block seem to want and NEED their leaders to talk down to them. They, like small children, want the protection of a BIG DADDY who will tell them "Don't you worry, I'm here to protect you." and so they go on talking down, just to appease the constituency in order to get their votes. Depressing is too light a word for how this makes me feel. thinkingblue
PS: Just for your information, it may sound like Kasparov is saying "Jew political but that is his accent he is really saying geopolitical ...

GEOPOLITICAL - a -The study of the relationship among politics and geography, demography, and economics, especially with respect to the foreign policy of a nation. b - A Nazi doctrine holding that the geographic, economic, and political needs of Germany justified its invasion and seizure of other lands.
