Hitchens vs. Blair: Is Religion a Force for Good in the World?

I'm not the biggest fan of Christopher Hitchens, but you can't deny his unfailing debate chops during this round of Blair pummeling arguments and rebuttals (at this year's Munk Debates) about the value or hazards of religion and faith. It's sometimes too easy to misread assuredness and a sophisticated understanding of an issue as arrogance or condescension, but (in my opinion) Hitchens maintains an entirely rational, reasoned, and respectful tact while dismantling each of Blair's vapid contentions and concessions...
