Synopsis: Dave will use this book by Ben Burgis to lead a discussion on Christopher Hitchens.

Hitchens, who died 10 years ago, a militant atheist and committed socialist,will be remembered by the left as a traitor who responded to 9/11 by supporting America’s wars in the Middle East. 

Is he even worth remembering? Does he still matter? 

Burgis is a columnist for Jacobin Magazine, an adjunct philosophy professor at Rutgers, an online instructor at the School for Social and Cultural Change, and hosts a podcast and You Tube show Give Them An Argument. He also debates conservatives and libertarians from a democratic socialist perspective.Click on the book cover for ordering information.
