I thought so too. You can see Levin's background as a journalist comes through.

I was looking for the part where Krishnamurti says "I doubt it" as I wanted to see it again in context. It is around 5 minutes into the clip here.

There may not be such a word in the US of A where Shakespeare has been reduced to the level of a fast-food takeaway menu and appalling grammar such as 'nice try not' seems to be acceptable, but there certainly is such a word in the UK where English as a language was developed and furthermore it scans more nicely than 'obedience' which has far too many syllables for my liking.

Absolutely. The ripostes are mine. The punches are yours.
