Very clever. And poignant.

That's crazy awesome. When I first saw the real video, Dennis screaming "Help, help, I'm being repressed!" immediately came to mind.

I'm glad someone else carried the vision.

This is the first time i saw the real video (and the linked video too). Very disturbing.

You can never fight against society or an organization and win. If you do, it was probably not worth it going the distance. Being right comes at a cost

As does being an idiot. I tend to agree with his views, but that doesn't mean I think he should be able to take over what's supposed to be a question/answer session with an extended lecture. From viewing the real video, it looks to me like his objective was to make as much of a spectacle of himself as he could. Which he did. I'm all for his right to state what he thinks in a public forum, but that doesn't mean he can take over that forum. Say what you need to say in a finite amount of time, or find another forum - a street corner, a mailing list, your blog, whatever. Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom to monopolize someone else's microphone.

Hmm... you have a point as well. Taken
