The first two of these videos were posted over at Archive Fire a month or so ago. I like them so much that I thought I'd post them, along with two others by Hage on the Gaza conflict, so that my readers can benefit from watching them too. I really like Hage's way of thinking, and will comment more on these lectures later. Right now I've got to go to bed so I can wake up bright and early for lecture tomorrow. For the moment, I'll just say that I really like, in the videos on Gaza, his emphasis on improving the relationship rather than empowering one side or the other. I think the same principle could apply in a number of situations, including the environmental crisis. More later, I promise. Enjoy the videos!
