The True Core Of The Jesus Myth - Christopher Hitchens - FreedomFest 1
Dinesh D'Souza and Christopher Hitchens go at it again at the 2008 Freedom Fest as the
FreedomFest is an annual festival where "free minds meet" to celebrate "great books,
great ideas, and great thinkers" in an open-minded society. It is independent, non-partisan,
and not affiliated with any organization or think tank.
Founded and produced by Mark Skousen, since 2002, FreedomFest invites the "best and the
brightest" from around the world to talk, strategize, socialize, and celebrate liberty.
FreedomFest is open to all and is purely egalitarian, where speakers, attendees, and
exhibitors are treated as equals.
Christopher Hitchens (born 1949) is an author, journalist and literary critic. Currently living
in Washington, D.C., he has been a columnist at Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, World Affairs,
The Nation, Slate, Free Inquiry, and a variety of other media outlets. Hitchens is also a
political observer, whose books — the latest being "God Is Not Great: How Religion
Poisons Everything" — have made him a staple of talk shows and lecture circuits.
In 2009 Hitchens was listed by Forbes magazine as one of the "25 most influential liberals in
U.S. media." The same article noted, though, that he would "likely be aghast to find
himself on this list" and that he "styles himself a radical", not a liberal.
