"Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent"

Serving as a sort of balance – for lack of a better word – to the neoc*n article I posted a few hours ago, here is a Frontline interview with Hamza Yusuf, a man for whom I have an endless amount of respect and admiration. He references Thoreau, Shakespeare and The Song of Roland; he discusses hegemony, foundations of democracy, need for dissent, and the role of media, etc.

It is the likes of him who make me proud.
