Brief flash of greatness

Dr. West's brief 3 minute speech is a short flash of brilliance in a discussion that is otherwise a glorification of the potential of big government to care for all.

Dr. West also lets slip a glimpse of an underlying yearning for the soft chains of benevolent government - "Government can be affirmative if they are helping poor and working people"

That's okay, we will take what we can get for now. Eventually they will learn that a government that has the power to provide everything, also has the power to take everything away.
