Over at Foreign Policy's website, you can vote for your favorite Public Intellectuals. Since I opted out of all the "thinkers" whose claim to fame was perpetuating a neo-conservative fantasia, and couldn't bring myself to support trendoid picks like Malcolm Gladwell, choosing was both ridiculously easy, and then perplexingly difficult. Anyway, in the end, I decided to cast my votes for Lawrence Lessig, Samantha Power, Vaclav Havel, Wole Soyinka, and Alex Balk. I had to write-in one of them, but fuck it. My voice is gonna be heard.
