HOPE X (2014): "Keynote Address - Daniel Ellsberg" (Download)
Saturday, July 19, 2014: 1:00 pm (Manning, Serpicao, Olson): We're thrilled that the whistleblower of all whistleblowers - Daniel Ellsberg - will be one of our keynote speakers this year. Ellsberg was the cause of one of the biggest political controversies ever seen in the United States when he released the Pentagon Papers in 1971 and changed history. We are honored that Daniel Ellsberg recognizes the value and importance of the HOPE X conference and it's great to know that he'll be able to speak in person to a whole new generation of individuals who will also shape the direction of the world one day. We can only hope they'll also be ready to stand up for their convictions, no matter the cost.
