Yesterday, Sunday, April 17, 2011, New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof wrote an opinion piece The Power of Mockery. A month earlier on March 17, 2011, I conducted this video interview with Kristof during his lecture visit to Kennesaw State University. I mention Gene Sharp, the man credited with writing the nonviolence playbook which helped overthrow tyrants including the latest to fall in the Middle East.
Watch the video, it is indeed the precursor to Kristof’s Sunday column, which he was obviously forming in his mind at the time of the interview. Did I help a little? Maybe, watch and you decide.
