то же, с транскриптом и полная версия.

это – академическая иллюстрация Закона Годвина в действии.

STEIN: .. We can’t just let al Qaeda run wild. If we try to stop them —
PAUL: Why?
STEIN: Why should we stop them? Because they are terrorists and murderers and they’re very anti-American.
PAUL: Why are they terrorists?
STEIN: Surely congressman —
PAUL: Why are they terrorists?
STEIN: They’re terrorists and murders because they are psychos.
PAUL: They’re terrorists because we’re occupiers.

именно тот Рон Пол (ранний критик Бреттон-Вудса, важный оппонент Никсона), именно тот Ben Stein (отрицает эволюцию, кризис ипотеки, сын именно того Герберта Штайна, который адвокат, советник по экономике и спичрайтер Робо-Никсона)

старый кофликт таков:

/начало копи-пэйста

While still a medical resident in the 1960s, Paul was influenced by Friedrich Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom, which led him to read many works of Ayn Rand and Ludwig von Mises. He came to know economists Hans Sennholz and Murray Rothbard well, and credits to them his interest in the study of economics. He came to believe that what the Austrian school economists wrote was coming true on August 15, 1971, when President Richard Nixon closed the “gold window” by implementing the U.S. dollar’s complete departure from the gold standard. That same day, the young physician decided to enter politics, saying later,

“After that day, all money would be political money rather than money of real value. I was astounded.”

/конец копи-пэйста

догадайтесь, в каком университете готовились обоснования для Бреттон-Вудса?
