Manufacturing Intellect

The primary focus of Manufacturing Intellect is to rescue and preserve the greatest intellectual voices and bring them to you. I do this by assiduously searching for rare and unavailable video and audio; restoring video quality through denoising and deartifacting, upscaling, color correction, and careful sharpening; and meticulously repairing and conforming audio to the greatest listening quality.

My quest to preserve rare content takes me to various public, private and university libraries, thrift stores, used video, music and book stores, and into databases and archives all over the net.

Christopher Eric Hitchens (13 April 1949 - 15 December 2011) was a British-American author and journalist who wrote or edited over 30 books (including five essay collections) on culture, politics, and literature.

Hitchens was very critical of aspects of American foreign policy, such as American involvement in war crimes in Vietnam, Chile and East Timor. However, he also supported the United States in the Kosovo War, the Afghanistan War, the Iraq War and other military interventions.

"Religion is capable of driving people to such dangerous folly that faith seems to me to qualify as a kind of mental illness."

I'm more of a Richard Dawkins fan,  but Christopher Hitchens was cool as well!

GOOD ONE:

When you hear people demanding that the Ten Commandments be displayed in courtrooms and schoolrooms, always be sure to ask which set. It works every time.""

It's a major source of incomprehension and tension for vast disputes that sometimes end into violence!

Harsh religious preachers are keys of disbelief and anxiety for huge quarrels; for moments to end with aggression!
