Kasparov to America: ‘Just Don’t Get Crazy’ | Q&A: Ricochet | November 8, 2021


Listen to my appearance on Jay Nordlinger’s Q&A Podcast at the Ricochet Audio Network.

Garry Kasparov is the chess champion and democracy champion. He was Jay’s very first guest on “Q&A,” in 2015. For 255 months, Kasparov was the world’s No. 1 in chess. As Jay points out, Tiger Woods, in his career so far, has been No. 1 in golf for 158 months. Kasparov is chairman of the Human Rights Foundation and also chairman of the Renew Democracy Initiative. RDI has a new program called “Frontlines of Freedom.” In his latest conversation with Jay, Kasparov talks of many things, not excluding chess. But his main message is: The world needs America. The world needs America to be strong, sane, and democratic. “Just don’t get crazy.” Curb radicalism, coming from whatever direction. Remember who you are, and what you stand for.”
