Hitchens and The Death of Neo-Liberalism

On GNN with Stephen Marshall from his new book, "Wolves in Sheeps Clothing".
Hitchens: "Liberalism was an attempt to drape capitalism with some kind of pious social conscience…It used to be preceded almost always with the term ‘wishy-washy."
"I think it’s a good thing that American national interests are present in, and can apparently be made congruent to, the spread of democracy. It doesn’t happen without people fighting for it. It’s not just objectively true. You have to fight to make it true, so that it becomes so."
Interview, fabulous. Comments, maybe not.
