I like this talk a lot, particularly since right afterward I did not think it had gone well. This was the talk where I thought that I was speaking to backers of the Republican establishment, and what I told them was not exactly what they wanted to hear.

You will hear a lot of stammering, but considering I was going without notes, that’s not so bad. I find reading from a prepared text too boring, so the price I pay is a lot of utterances of the “uh…uh” variety.

Anyway, the theme of the talk is that we need competitive government in a post-industrial society.
