More than thirty years ago I lived for a year in Cambridge MA and spent time in the Harvard undergraduate library. A young man who looked kind of like a bullfighter was always there, used to walk down the halls of the library with his nose in a book, stepping over the legs of students who were sitting on the floor, never looking up. Curious abouit this man, I learned his name was Roberto Unger, a junior faculty member of whom the university expected great things. One person described him to me as "the next Karl Marx."
When I saw an online headline -- "Former professor says Obama must be defeated" -- I followed the link and saw that the professor was Roberto Unger, who had taught Obama at the Harvard Law School. The video below is not the one where he speaks about Obama, but it is a more substantial representation of his thoughts. Viewers can form their own conclusions. I am inspired by the Unger's revolutionary perspective, which he expresses with Miltonic or Dostoeveskian fervor.
Unger has run for office in Brazil. He's one of those guys who has read every book in the world. I really like him. You can see his comments about Obama on Youtube. It's really more about the Democrats collectively.-
The clip of Steven Jobs at the start of this tape is an interesting touch. There's a lot to say about this but I'm too tired.
