Queer Activist Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore debates Dan Choi

Does Opposing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Bolster US Militarism? A Debate with Lt. Dan Choi and Queer Activist Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore

Lt. Dan Choi brilliantly debates (he’d make an excellent lawyer) the adamant Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore over the issue of gays in the U.S. Military on Amy Goodman’s DEMOCRACY NOW television show. Matilda’s appeal to morality is compelling, passionate. Dan’s appeal to critical thinking is dramatic, demanding the listener pause and listen to his reasoning. Dan is easily the more polished speaker, avoiding the many verbal pauses in Matilda’s presentation.  Amy Goodman’s production is topnotch including the wonderful musical score that’s incorporated. This is compelling viewing–click on the following link to watch it:
