      2. I didn't agree with him on a lot of his politics,

      but as an anti-theist he was great

    5. Don't forget his co-traveler

    He left the same day as one who greatly perplexed him, one who created Hitch’s vision of heaven right here on earth*

    *Heaven being a place where the masses fawn in adulation at a Deity.

    Policy:  The mistaken notion that bossy people have that they can influence other people's behavior through majority rule.

      7. It wasn't until after Hitchens' died that I finally figured out his support of

      Iraq War and neo-cons.  It was in a eulogy written by Salman Rushdie.

      Hitchens was vehemetly opposed to all religion; it was an total anathema to him.  I think his perspective was that the Iraq war (and Afghanistan) was a war against religion; what which I think he hoped would be the first of many.  I think had it lived, he would have changed his mind about the war – not about religion.

       

      Confidence is quiet.  Insecurities are loud.
