Heart and Mind


The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers is basically the film version of Ellsberg's book Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Cold War – a consummate insider's account of the war (events on Ellsberg's first day of work at the Pentagon include: the Tonkin Gulf Incident; events on the last: leaking the Pentagon Papers), and one of the most inspiring transformation stories I've ever read (those of Malcolm X and Robert F. Kennedy being two others). The Most Dangerous Man in America premiered this week in New York and should hopefully be making the rounds soon (while you're waiting, this is worth another look).
