hitchens on m teresa: hell's angel

i became a fan of hitchens after i read 'the missionary position'.

you can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but hey, not all the people all the time. hitchens saw through it.

The full video is more than 24 min long. The one posted here (circa 8 min) is Part 1 of 3. Towards the end of the full video, Hitchens says,
[24 min 01 s → 24 min 22 s] “In a Godless and cynical age it may be inevitable that people will seek to praise the self-effacing, the altruistic and the pure in heart, but only a complete collapse of our critical faculties can explain the illusion that such a person is manifested in the shape of a demagogue, and obscurantist and a servant of earthly powers.”

It is the same “complete collapse of our critical faculties” that has resulted in our electing certain persons to be our Nation's rulers.
