This debate is required viewing for anyone who appreciates the work of either of these two great minds. It takes place in 1971 as the war in Vietnam rages on. They discuss their respective specialties, human nature, the direction of society, society’s institutions, class warfare, capitalism, Marxism, anarcho-syndicalism, and much more.
