Edward Said on Iraq

Apologies for the lack of activity in this space. We have updates on our recent travels to Thailand and Arizona, as well as work on proscenium and street theater, but before we get to those, this 2001 video of Edward Said taking on Charlie Rose and debunking the status quo on Iraq (and the rest of the Middle East) is definitely worth watching. The second interview is with George Soros, and while he's a bit of a mixed bag (defintely not the kind of champion that Said was) his take on market fundamentalism and the "open society" also deserves some attention.
