Still happening. I click the arrow and get https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iW4-lcWFzF91j7gyO0uq5AeRmB2ztfYA/view

I tried. I opened my Google Drive…downloaded..got the same error message.
You to convert the file to a video watching platform such as YouTube…I tried that as well. Google offers 3 options. I got error messages on all three because of the size. It told I could purchase a package for Cloud Converter, etc. Sorry. I love Douglas Murray, I was so interested.
We’ve loaded a YouTube version of the speech in place of the old file. Hopefully, that will work for you.
I was there at the lecture and Mr. Murray was simply great. I was so impressed I went back and ordered many of his books.
I attended the lecture, and it was outstanding.
Douglas Murray is brilliant, possesses a superb dry wit, and provides a global perspective on the problem of DEI/ESG/Victim mentality/White or cultural superiority and “systemic racism. These misguided policies are simply destroying our Western cultures and reigniting class/racial divisiveness, the exact opposite of their stated purpose and goals.
“Stated” purpose is the operative descriptor.
They are accomplishing EXACTLY their goals, just not the “stated” ones.
Marxists lie. “By any means necessary”
“Nothing above the State”
Wake up everybody! (Cue Harold Melvin w/ Teddy P – played a lot at UVA when I was there)
