Bertrand Russell Authority and the Individual (1948) | Open Culture
His lecture series, Authority and the Individual, delved into an age old question in political philosophy -- the individual and his/her relationship with communities and states. The head of the BBC later groused that Russell spoke "too quickly and had a bad voice." But the real complaints came from the Soviets, who interpreted Russell's lectures as an attack on Communism.
