Regarding what he had to say about the IF and Rasputin...
What a load of crap.
Otherwise never heard of the guy.
And will never again I hope.

I'll have to go back and hear the whole thing. I just linked it when I saw it was on and had Rasputin's name. To just call it a 'load of crap' with out being specific seems just like a shout down to me. Benjamin is a Christian comic philosopher who's thesis seems to be that personal decadence leads to the downfall of civilisations; he cites history and the current west as examples, and here Rasputin's behaviour and acts as contributing to the death of 85 million people. Bit of a stretch but even back then people thought he was raping the children, so who knows?
