Disagree with me! Tell me I’m stupid, tell me why, let me learn. Let me think. Allow me to be angry with my mental short comings but let my mind expand to try to understand your point of view. Allow me the right to try to catch up, let me acknowledge there’s more. I, Meg, LOVED reading Christopher Hitchens.
This isn’t an “after-they-die-they’re great” tribute. I “liked” Christopher Hitchen’s page as soon as there was one to like.
Agree or not, the man made you think. I admire him greatly. I am only very sorry that I never took his course when I had the chance. I had no idea that he really was “terminal’. Large presence belies large longevity.
He took on “the establishment” then he took it further, he took on God. He was dying and he took on Jesus. I don’t know how to measure the size of balls but that took big ones.
Whether I agree with your opinion or not, I will always respect you for having one. It’s shocking to me how many don’t voice their opinions. Speak up.
Do I agree with everything he wrote? Of course not. He wrote “Women Are Not Funny.” I think I’m pretty funny. We’ll agree to disagree.
I think he’s brilliant, I think he was irreverent and brave. Standing behind your thoughts is absolutely fantastic, no matter what your beliefs are.
Here is a video where Christopher Hitchens is doing what he does best, he’s doing a Hitch-Slap and every once in a while, we need one. I’m one of the “toy player’s” but I so love he doesn’t want to play. Other marionette’s make the puppetry think.
I applaud free-thinking, I encourage dialogue, I love to be challenged. I agreed with you more Christopher then not. I would never be so brave to voice and fight on your principles. You enjoyed your drinks, you enjoyed your smokes and you went on your own terms.
Good for you.
We all could use a lesson on speaking up. We go around once. Do it! Any other Christopher Hitchen fans?
