The Roots of anti-Americanism

Found this at Drudge. It's Evan Sayet speaking at The Heritage Foundation. He's a writer, lecturer, and pundit who for 20 years was a top Hollywood writer and producer for the likes of Bill Maher and Arsenio Hall.

The title of the 45-minute lecture is "Regurgitating the Apple: How Modern Liberals Think", but forget the labels. It's a fascinating analysis of what he calls "indescriminateness of thought", often called moral equivilancy. The indescriminateness of thought which has led to much of today's anti-America, anti-Military agenda.

Sayet makes several references to Allan Bloom's book, The Closing of the American Mind, which is also well worth your time.
