92Y Video: An Evening With Malcolm Gladwell Moderated By Ariel Levy

Malcolm Gladwell was here with author Ariel Levy (Female Chauvinist Pigs: Women and the Rise of Raunch Culture) last night for discussion of his, books, advice his father gave him, Occupy Wall Street and more. Watch some highlights in the video above.

Gladwell told Ariel the only advice his father gave him was: “Not to become a journalist. ...’don’t go work for The Daily Mirror.’”

Gladwell also had shared this thoughts about the current reality among young adults leaving college “encumbered… with mortgage level debts,” as well as some advice for Occupy Wall Street and President Obama. “I think they have to get angrier,” he told Ariel. “I do think there is a weird absence of anger on the part of people who unhappy with the status quo. And there’s even an absence of anger in our President, which I think would be appropriate for him to get angry with the way things have gone. There’s nothing wrong with standing up and saying ‘this is bullsh*t!’ Right? I inherited a mess. I’m trying to clean it up and I need your help. There’s nothing wrong with saying that. Liberals… shouldn’t let the conservatives co-opt all of the anger in the system.”

Upcoming Talks at 92Y include: Dr. Harry Wells Fogarty on Carl Jung (Nov 3); A Conversation with Lindsey Buckingham (Nov 4); Niall Ferguson: The West and the Rest (Nov 6).
