Everything conspicuous and worth examining

Christopher Hitchen.

This post is going to be dedicated to one of my favourite writer of our modern period. a man who has always exhibited a tremendous amount of honesty and the courage of his conviction. i tend to disagree with a lot of his points. some tend to be on his points on religion which even though i am an atheist i have certain quarrels with. when it comes to foreign policy issue and the middle I tend to agree to a large degree with Hitchens. On 30 June 2010, Hitchens postponed his book tour for Hitch-22 to undergo treatment for oesophageal cancer. he is a man who has as he put it “I burned the candle at both ends and it gave a lovely light”, a quite insightful quote which probably describe the lifestyle of Christopher Hitchens better than anything else. So in this post I am going present my favourite Hitchens speeches and once you hear him speak you will at once understand the sorrow of losing such a brilliant mind.

My all time Favorite being an excerpt  from a speech on the purpose of life according to him. this comes from a debate between him and Jay Richard on the topic of God.

This one is where he summarizes why we would be off better without religion

And a great debate of Freedom of speech held in Toronto. this is a three-part series
