THE DYING CITIZEN: HOW PROGRESSIVE ELITES, TRIBALISM, AND GLOBALIZATION ARE DESTROYING THE IDEA OF AMERICA
Discussed by Victor Davis Hanson
with Victor Davis Hanson (www.victorhanson.com)

Do our nation’s privileged sit or take a knee in disgust for our flag? Is the preservation of the American Republic at stake?

Author and Professor Victor Davis Hanson is the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow in Residence in Classics and Military History at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, a Professor of Classics Emeritus at California State University, Fresno, and a nationally syndicated columnist for Tribune Media Services.

Today Victor discusses his newest book, “THE DYING CITIZEN: How Progressive Elites, Tribalism, and Globalization are Destroying the Idea of America.”

Click here for more information about Victor and his books.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Is America’s education establishment, K through College, teaching students that America is irredeemably racist?

Is America’s education establishment, K through College, promoting bureaucratic control of the economy?

Instead of American citizenship, is world citizenship being praised, pushed, and extolled? Explaining how the elite pander to other countries, Victor says: “These cultures have developed in a way that is interconnected with markets and not with the interior of their own country.”

Can the “American Citizen” survive the onslaught of this radical post-modern assault?

Are nations often lost not over centuries but within a single decade?



PART 2 OF 3 - THE DYING CITIZEN: HOW PROGRESSIVE ELITES, TRIBALISM, AND GLOBALIZATION ARE DESTROYING THE IDEA OF AMERICA
Discussed by Victor Davis Hanson
with Victor Davis Hanson (www.victorhanson.com)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Does “Free Citizenship” mean that no citizen should follow any law other than those voted into law by their own elected officials? Victor explains that this results in a massive amount of damage, using COVID treatments as an example…

Should any college administrator be allowed to decide that the First Amendment no longer applies on their campus?

Should any Mayor be allowed to claim that federal immigration law no longer exists in their city?

Is there any one American deserving of greater deference under the law than any other? HINT: Absolutely not! Victor reminds us of Jim Crow and other laws that have helped all people over the decades.

Does citizenship bestow rights and responsibilities? Victor gets very passionate while answering this question. Listen close!




PART 3 OF 3 - THE DYING CITIZEN: HOW PROGRESSIVE ELITES, TRIBALISM, AND GLOBALIZATION ARE DESTROYING THE IDEA OF AMERICA
Discussed by Victor Davis Hanson
with Victor Davis Hanson (www.victorhanson.com)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

The masses in America are dependent on the god of government. Does this spell doom?

For a nation to survive long-term, must it have citizens or merely residents?

Tribes may be fine for tradition and culture. However, is bonding and adapting to a country vital for success? Victor says: “You don’t tamper with the core. You don’t tamper with the Constitution. You don’t tamper with due process or free market capitalism. We all give up something.”

Are we now governed by the unelected bureaucrat?

If we allow the Electoral College, the Second Amendment, the Senate filibuster, and the integrity of the Supreme Court to be thrown on the ash heap of history, will we then be ruled by a world leader uninterested in our individual rights? Victor explains why he believes this is already happening with the corporate and celebrity elite…

Discussed by Pastor Jarrett Stephens
