Have Wealthy Societies Historically Embraced 'Wokeism'?

"Of history, I'm curious, you mentioned the French Revolution. There has there been times ever in history. Where a very wealthy society decides to embrace this kind of woke ideology, something similar to woken. Does that make sense? I mean, there was a legitimate reason to get rid of the bourbons. And they looked at there were a lot of moderate people and they looked at the British system and they said, you can have a monarchy compatible with a constitutional republic. And that was eminently possible in 1787. And then you had these cycles of revolution where today's revolutionary would be tomorrow's sellout. You just want more robespierre was killed by the very people who used to support him, right? And basically got liquidated him and his brother in about 1400. And they applauded for ten minutes. The legend goes. They did. And then those cycles kept going and then you always are into it. So what does that mean for us then? Well, it always ends because chaos is unsustainable. So Napoleon ended it. Very brilliant fashion. He just said, I am the revolution, I'm going to make all the total power. I'm going to create a military academy that's going to be based on Napoleon. It's just like Stalin stopped it.

Tell us about your book, the dying citizen. Well, it's a, it's not a lamentation or a eulogy for the dead citizen because I would have called it the dead citizen. It's a process of dying. And it's an erosion in the traditional prerogatives of a citizen. I think it applies to the western world in general, not just the United States in particular, but it's the suggestion that there's no sharp difference between a resident, legal or illegal and a citizen whether that means voting today or engaging in a campaign. You can be a resident. You can be here illegally and do that. Or military service. The only thing the only distinction that's left really is the ability to hold office, only citizens can do that. But if you're not a citizen, you're a resident, you can come and go as you please, apparently, see in the southern border. You can join the military. You can vote in certain places. I think soon you'll be able to hold off. So I tried to explain the history of citizenship. It was very rare, peculiar, late in history, and 8th century in Greece, fragile, today there's only two or three places that can pull off a multiracial constitutional system, Brazil, maybe India, they don't do it very well. But I was trying to remind people that unless you invest in citizenship and constantly audit it, it's the aberration in history and it will disappear.

Is There a Scenario Where by the Democrats Discover Common Sense?

"Com. We are back with our regular guest lord Conrad black, follow him right now at Conrad and black read his long writings at The Epoch Times in American greatness and also listen to the podcast he co hosts with Victor Davis Hanson and also with Bill Bennett. Listen to it, subscribe today. Lord black, thank you for the assist there. I had a Biden moment there for a second. Let's talk about this specter that we have three years left, constitutionally of this administration. You always are so assiduous in your saying, you're not a psychiatrist. You're not a psychologist. You can't get into the heads of those that we are talking about. However, politically, are there scenarios within which the Democrat party finds rationality or common sense? Because we were playing clips today and yesterday of members of the cabinet saying, yeah, this is a great opportunity. The war with Russia is a great opportunity to get rid of fossil fuels and, oh, you can just buy a Tesla. If not, arrogance detachment from reality and what the average American lives. Is there any way in which suddenly they have a cold shower and act a little bit more reasonably? I think we have to wait for election day for that. I mean, it appears that the and I don't know how this happened and historians well connected with these events or at least capable of ascertaining exactly what happened. We'll have to we'll have to analyze this, but the Democratic Party, which in fairness was under the under president Clinton, for example, it was a center left operation, but it wasn't an extreme or absurdly careless reckless regime. The budget generally and the behavior. I mean, I personally wouldn't have had a vote wouldn't have voted for president Clinton, but you can't say it was an extreme or irrational concept of government that he had. And most of the senior people had were people you could deal with. But a here we have the great Democratic Party taken over by an outright socialist movement infested with anti americanism. I mean, essentially, a self hating movement, but convincing itself that it wasn't self hate. It was, it was patriotism, because it wanted to make America better by curing it of these terrible, horrible

Victor Davis Hanson Shares Some Potential Post-War Scenarios

"The outcome, whether the fighting continues unabated for months to come, whether there is some kind of negotiated settlement whereby larger parts of Ukraine are partitioned off. What is the best way to describe the potential scenario afterwards? Right now it's not a Cold War because it's civilians of being shelled thousands of Ukrainians have died tanks are being blown up. Is it right to say this stage that we have reentered or could be reentering a new Cold War? Yeah, I think a lot of it will depend on China and China's attitude toward Russia will depend on how well Russia does. If Russia becomes an international pariah and it loses, then China feels that it screwed up the paradigm that it wants to use for Taiwan. There was more international outrage and the people like the Taiwanese might fight like the Ukraine and we might supply the Taiwanese as we did. And they will blame Russia for that. And they will try to straddle, they'll be more like Indians straddle the fence. But if Putin wins and he ends up with half of Ukraine and he has an energy and food for cash from China, then I think it's going to be potentially an ES 7200 nukes that might be on the side of China in any showdown. Then I think we're headed for something that's pretty dangerous because the thing about the Cold War was the communist system was so inefficient and their GDP was so pathetic that they couldn't sustain a 50 year war, but China's a communist country, but it's got a Proto capitalist system in its flush with cash and we never had people in the Cold War that were compromised like they are now with China. So many people are making so

Victor Davis Hanson on the Impact of Rising Gas Prices

"Let's talk about the peculiar rewriting of history. The price, I did the math on the way to the studio that has been a $101 94 cent increase of gas prices since January the 20th since inauguration. And only 70 cents of that has occurred since the invasion of Ukraine, yet we are supposed to believe that The White House narrative is that the price in oil, inflation and everything else is a function of Vladimir Putin. In California, does that resonate? Do people believe that everything can be blamed on the last three weeks, professor? No, nobody believes out. California, you know, it was much worse. I'm in a very poor area of California. It's got the lowest per CAPiTA income of anywhere in the state. This town that I live near is about 16,000 dollar per annum income per individual, but the price right now is about $5 and ten cents for gasoline and 6 O 5 for diesel fuel and a diesel and gas used to be comparable, but for some reason in California they've got a wide gap now. We're $6. So if you're in a if you're a trucker going down the 99 all day long into Arizona, thousand mile trip, you're going to lose two to $300 of your income just to pay for additional diesel fuel that's more than doubled in price. And that's where we are. And everybody understands that but remember that you understand this is only the latest narrative that Putin did it before it was the greedy oil companies did it. And then before that it was all the people who didn't want to use these beautiful productive leases that they just ignored as if an oil executive has ever ignored at least it has sizable deposits upon it. So we've heard all of these excuses. And this, I think a lot of people feel that they're crying crocodile tears about the high prices, but they feel it. We might take a short term hit in the red turd, but this is Steven choose dream come true. Another Californian that we can get 7 or $8 a gallon gas and we can make what is otherwise on economical alternate energy, a reality.

"I wish we didn't do You remember the hot mic and Seoul South Korean march of 2012 and I really wish Obama had and I've had that quid pro quo where we dismantle the missile defense ostensibly It was to protect Eastern Europe against Iran but right now we have a joint missile defense to hit missiles on their initial trajectory and Eastern Europe That would have been a deterrent We just gave that up for nothing I shouldn't say nothing We gave it up So for Obama's request to have flexibility in space so that he after he could get reelected then I guess he was saying that Putin could do what he wanted but not in 2012 And he was willing to dismantle what had been a pretty good project that had just started to be But I think we have enough deterrence U.S. nuclear strategic doctrine is a little different We have the ability and accuracy and multiplicity of platforms that the Russians as the Soviets knew that we could take a first strike and they could not So I think what the generals will tell them if you were to be so stupid to send a missile or a lot of them to take out American sites They have the ability to wipe us off the map And that's not counting the 250 or 300 nukes at France And the UK have So I don't think it's a serious threat but any time you even mention that you got to take it seriously

"Sir what do you make of his escalating nuclear rhetoric You think it's a bluff I mean again a lot of folks miscalculated with a lot of experience dealing with the region who thought as I said before he would just stick with the eastern region of Ukraine and not go any further That clearly was not the case Given a black swan event like a nuclear attack it's not the type of thing we can just cast off and disregard Your take on why he's escalating the nuclear rhetoric Oh I think he realizes that in every incursion invasion the key to whether you win or lose or borders and we lost in Vietnam because of the Ho Chi Minh trail in the Southeast Asia supply depots We had a tough time We don't really last map down us down because of the Pakistan border in Iraq Syria and Iran Anytime you have that fluidity and you can be resupplied you're not going to win And he's looking at the statistics it's in many thousands now of javelins and sams that have been sent in there and you look at that picture of that convoy and in theory those jobs that new improve can hit something that over two miles and the guy could be in the forest beyond the flanking infantry guards of that convoy and take out a lot of vehicles if they have that many of them So he's thinking well I've got to get this over with and when and these people we've got four NATO countries that are that are going to stop me And so I'm going to threaten a nuclear strike on the west but when you look people have remarked about the look of these generals when he said that I don't know if that's indicative of a thing but I think yeah I don't

Victor Davis Hanson: Vladimir Putin Is Pretty Predictable

"So our first question for you today you know the variables here as I've been discussing in my first hour of the show are nearly endless and the problem we have is there's a certain predictability that's gone out the window with Vladimir Putin I mean even for an international despot like Kim Jong-un we can generally figure out what he's not going to do It appears right now with Putin that that's getting more difficult I mean a lot of people with a lot of experience in the region seem to think he wouldn't invade outside of eastern Ukraine and did it anyway Do you see him as being irrational or unpredictable or do you have a different viewpoint on that I have a little different I think he's pretty predictable I think the only thing that was unexpected is that the initial 48 hours or three days even he didn't use the full extent of his power to crush the Ukrainian resistance underestimated He thought it would be analogous to eastern Ukraine or Crimea or Georgia where it was pretty easy But I think the way he figures is that he's going to pour in everything he has And crush the Ukrainians and in a month from now when you are I talk to people we won't remember the initial difficulty where we're only being supposedly in his mind and pressed by Russian power and decisiveness and this will send a signal to everybody in the former Soviet Union that are not part of some other Russia of it

Is There Any Hope for the Mainstream Media?

"Had CBS News right the following headline, which was, I thought it couldn't get much worse than it had under the Trump era. The U.S. economy has been hit with increased gas prices inflation and supply chain issues. Due to the Ukraine crisis, this is a headline that came three days after the Russian troops went into those two breakaway republics. I don't know where to begin. Is there any hope for the mainstream media professor? No. None at all. They know they know that if Joe Biden had not cut, if we were a backup to nearly 13 million barrels of oil rather than 9 point something and if we were back up to another 20% of natural gas production, the world price might be higher because of the increased demand after the lockdowns, but we wouldn't have these crushing prices here in the United States. They know that. And they know that the supply chain issue is partly global, but in particular, when you have mandates and lockdowns and places like the port of Los Angeles, you're just not going to have an efficient operation. And they know that printing money, I mean, inflation essentially is a monetary problem. And when you printed or at least scheduled to print $5 trillion and you don't have an increase in productivity or an increase in population, and we don't, then those mini dollars are chasing too few goods and prices rise.

"So what would you do if you were advising this administration? And it's a kind of thucydides trap, it's kind of a catch 22. If we had given the weakness demonstrated in the last year, there is very little that can be done to extricate oneself, short of replacing the commander in chief with somebody who has credibility. So it's hard to change the ingredients in the cake once the cake has come out of the oven. Is it not? Yeah, it is. I mean, if you had asked me this question in January 20th, I would have said up the 13 million barrels to 15 million barrels and crashed that price so he has no wherewithal and we don't we're more independent and we could ship liquified natural gas to Europe and they wouldn't have to go through with this pipeline and then I would have said continue the Trump pressure for these countries to up their military contributions I would have said to Ukraine what are the offensive weapon up offensive, not defensive offensive weapons that you need and here they are, but we're not there now. And so now he's flush with cash, Putin, the sanctions won't immediately hurt him. And he's made a cost of benefit analysis that the Biden administration either won't react or will react very weakly.

Why We Can't Just Ignore Putin With Victor Davis Hanson

"Professor Hansen, welcome back to America first. Thank you for having me. We have to talk about the. Change in approach between the two administrations, not just to Russia, but also to NATO. But first, can I tease you out on what a problem I have with my fellow conservatives. Some of whose shows you are on quite regularly as well, who are saying, well, Ukraine doesn't matter, it's an irrelevance. The southern border is far more important or what's happening in Canada shouldn't conservatives be able to chew gum and walk at the same time. Isn't it axiomatic that whilst what is happening in Canada is very problematic. While we have to secure the southern border, a nuclear armed bully doing the things he does in his neighboring region eventually is not good for Americans either. Please give us your analysis. Oh yeah, I agree with that. And I think maybe that's why I'm a couple of shows I've been on there less regularly than usual because Vladimir Putin wants to restore as it's kind of a trite thing to say, but it's true. The old borders of the Soviet Union. And he can't do it, sad because he's got a 100 million people fewer. And he lost about 30% of his territory, some of them richest of all. So he has to be predatory and opportunistic against his neighbors. So that's a constant. And so we can deter him. I mean, NATO has a billion people. It's got an economy 8 times larger than Russia. But he seeks weakness. And when certain occasions happen, when we were bogged down in Iraq, when we were at an economic problems when the price of oil skyrocketed in 2080 went into Georgia. And in 2014, no need to go through that again, but when Obama said, give me some space, it's my last election and I'll be flexible and missile defense where he invited them into the Middle East for the first time in 40 years or he told the Russians he assured them he wouldn't sell offensive weaponry to Ukraine. And then he at the same time trashed Putin by saying Russians can't do anything. They're inept and Biden took up that narrative when he was called Putin a killer and all of this may be true, but he was weak. So he said, if you're going to hack your 16 entities that you shouldn't hack or look at what happened in Afghanistan or when he kept saying, well, maybe there'll be a minor invasion. So there's a certain rules and that is when NATO pays their fair share in Germany and turkey are not freelancing and more favorable to Russia than they are with us when a president is quiet with a big club rather than loud with a twig, and when oil prices are moderate, then Putin is not able to go threaten his

Is the Democratic Party Irrevocably Disconnected From Reality?

"Professor Hansen noted, this is what the vice president had to say by way of comparison today. For the January 6th attacks. It's that occupy. Not only a place on our calendars. But a place in our collective memory. December 7th, 1941. September 11th, 2001. And January 6th, 2021. So two events that were done by foreign actors each of which killed 3000 individuals and an event in which one person died who was actually one of the protesters shot by a police officer. It leads me to this question professor Hansen. Is the Democrat party irrevocably disconnected from reality that they can make? A speech writer or speech writers had to write that. Somebody had to okay it and then the vice president had to read it. What does this tell us about that party? Yeah, I think our problem is that we're using these ossified terms, Democratic Party. This is not a Democratic Party. It's not Hubert Humphrey. It's not Bill Clinton. It's not even Barack Obama's who was a radical progressive. This is something different. This is if I use the French revolutionary term, it's a jacobin Neal Bolshevik party. And their idea is that the more the more radical you are, the more gains and power you accumulate. And when you fail, it's not because you were too extreme, but because you were not radical enough, we saw that after the Virginia setback, they felt the problem was that we weren't radical enough. So Kamala Harris and the other thing I don't understand this is that by mutual consensus, she's pulling about democratic Republicans together. She's probably in about 25% to 30% approval. And why would you put her out there with such nonsense because the stereotype of her is that she's historically ignorant and clueless about past and present. Then you put her out there and she confirms all of these generalizations about her. I don't quite

Victor Davis Hanson Describes the Democrats’ Desperate Jan. 6 Spin

"With professor Hansen. You've talked about what should happen. We should have a bipartisan open investigation. The thousands of hours of video tape from the CCTV system should be released. That will not happen. We know the January 6th committee as constituted is illegal. There are 7 Democrats to Republicans who are not nominated by the RNC. So given that reality professor, what are your expectations? Will this committee that has subpoenaed my phone records as well despite the fact that I didn't even speak on January 6th? Will this become an even more radicalized political tool and if so, given that this is a midterm year from the strategic perspective, is there not a significant danger of this becoming an own goal of this backfiring for the Democrats? I think it is what the subtext is, is there going to magnify and extend this date January 6th all the way for an entire year? Along with the demonization of the now out of office Trump and why are they doing that? You know better than I do and so does your audience that none of the issues that they are running on or can run on have majority support. A left wing poll today had Joe Biden's approval ratings at 35%. Everybody knows that they have nothing other than conspiracy conspiracy just as if they tried race race race, Ku Ku Ku take over takeover democracy is going to die die, but if we just keep sober and look at what's gone on the last 11 months, who are the people who are trying to end the filibuster and the Electoral College, dismantle the 9 person Supreme Court, get rid of the states, premising and establishing, according to the constitution, balloting laws and national elections. Who's trying to get rid of a 60 year old tradition of a 50 state union. These are revolutionaries, but it's not coming from a bunch of clownish people that assemble in stormed into the capitol. And most people deplored that because I don't like anybody violating federal property. I think it's a crime, and it should be punished, but let's go after the 14,000 people who were arrested who committed a lot of crimes. Where are the people who established an autonomous zone in Seattle and just created a safe space to commit a series of felonies? Where are they now? Are they in jail? Are they under indictment?

Professor Victor Davis Hanson Breaks Down the 'Buffoonish Riot' of January 6

"Professor Hansen, welcome to America first. Thank you for having me. So let me just, I noted some of the words from that brand new video that has been posted on the Internet president Trump affected a coup an insurrection his supporters are traitors and brandishing AR-15s who are afraid of democracy, president Trump is demented. Just your reactions to those adjectives alone. Well, I criticize it as sort of a buffoonish riot, but insurrection and conspiracy are precise words. So let's just break them down. The FBI ran an investigation. They found no conspiracy. You can't have an insurrection unless people are armed. There were nobody that entered the capitol that it possessed or used a firearm. And we had headlines at 5 people died in an officer had been murdered. The officer Brian sicknick died of natural cause. We didn't find out for days. Because the media alleged that he had been bashed in the head by a Trump supporter or had suffered an allergic reaction due to bear spray by a Trump supporter. So what we were left with of that commercial was a 105 pound 14 year old 14 year military veteran ashleigh babbitt who was lethally shot for the crime of entering a window in the capitol breaking and entering either a low level felony or a misdemeanor. And we didn't get any information about the officer who shot her. So the whole narrative is broken down, but I like clarity. I like transparency. So I think the best thing that should do is have an independent commission. And let's get everything out. Let's get all of the videos. Let's get all of the communications about law enforcement between Democrats, Republicans, capitol police, administrators, everything. Get it out in a nonpartisan, not a congressional asymmetrical investigation, but an independent sort of Warren commission. Let's find out. And let's see if anybody was FBI informant. Maybe there were wearing. They were not. I don't

Rep. Mary Miller Discusses the Slippery Slope of Gender Politics

"She's an American representing the 15th congressional district of Illinois, Congress, woman, Mary Miller, welcome back to America first. Why thank you. I hope that I inspire regular people. Well, this is what we're all about. I don't want to hang out with politicians. I don't want politicians on my show. I once citizens who just happened to do a little bit of politics and you're a perfect exemplar. Let's talk about that very disturbing video out of Chicago. This is from the public schools authority that have embraced the insanity of gender politics play cuts. Unchanged that will be implemented this school year relates to our school bathrooms and compliance with new federal guidelines all CPS students and staff will have fair and equitable access to bathroom facilities that align with their gender identity. We will be providing all schools with updated signage that makes our bathrooms more inclusive. It will identify the fixtures available in each restroom and make it clear that all restrooms are open for use by anyone who feels comfortable. Staph will continue to have staff only restrooms available to them. This is an incredibly important step to increase gender equity for all, which is why we will be requiring all schools to post this signage by December 1st of this school year. Now, Mary, I grew up in the UK for me. That's a Monty Python skit from 40 years ago. Fair and equitable. Don't we just need a men's and a women's toilet? Yeah, it's outrageous. What's happening? But no doubt that they're doing this to be in compliance with the federal guidelines, and I've been having a back and forth on the education committee with the secretary cordona and he sent out a memo to all public schools saying that if you state that there's two genders you are guilty of harassment, which means to actually set harassment harassment, which means teachers and other staff can lose their jobs over this, students can be disciplined for saying there's two genders. So my question to him is, if there aren't too genders, how many genders

"Age the dying citizen is the book victor. Since you've permitted victor. I i've been talking in this last year the plague year about hope and about the idea that i believe that The good part of what. We've been enduring Is that many people formerly asleep or waking up. I have been a excited to see a lot of that. People who Realized when things get this bad maybe they should pay attention. Maybe they should change their opinions on things. So i have hope Do you do you have hope. Where do you see things from here. I do have hope. And i. I have a long epilogue because the book was written before two thousand twenty one but i have an epilogue and one of the things that i'm very hopeful about. Is that the traditional. Republican party is starting to metamorphasized. In other words. There were a lot of americans believe in many of its principles but for variety of rational and irrational reasons. They didn't want to be part of the party of mitt romney. For example a decent man nice guy but in their mind representation of a very elite person. That was not concerned when he gave that. Talk for example. Why can't do anything with a forty seven percent all takers and wrote off that part of it. So what i mean in particular is when you see the border crisis and then you see that mexican american communities along the borders are electing conservative representatives. Because they say that's not what we want destroying our communities or where i live in the san joaquin valley california people who are mexican american are saying. I'm not going to be taken for granted anymore. And maybe i'm going to. I'm going to vote for a republican. Because they're not the party of the golf course only anymore and then you see the people who were the elite. And that's what's really striking for me. Eric i when i know a lot of the never trumpers people. I agree with them on a lot of issues on free market economics and opposition go portion in some cases and things like that but they seem to be very angry. That this new party starring to say we're not going to write off the interior of the united states and say we'll go. Golden coding sure fall on. Opiates that they could be very valuable workers. We need them. This is the industrial heart of the world. At one time it can be again and so this new slowly. Transformation of the slow transformation of the conservative movement into one that says all different races all different crees at but our primary focus is not race or religion. It's class and we want a middle class because they are the most practical people and they are the foundation of citizenship. I think it's really spreading. And i think it's slow and we don't really know all of its contours yet. But how ironic that somebody. Who was a crass multi-billionaire let off this explosion and was the first person to say. China is not in our interest to have complete free trade and they will never interpret our magnaminity to be reciprocated and like kind. They'll see as weakness are if we're not gonna go and optional wars in the middle east and take the middle class and send them over there. Because we're gonna be energy independent and we're going to have our own choices or you can't have an open border because it will ruin the wages and the bargaining power of the light labor in muscular classes and you have assimilation intermarriage integration. If you have people come to quickly from one place all of those things were the ingredients of. I think a new a new idea about america and i think as haphazard an imperfect is that metamorphosis is that. I don't think maybe you can disagreement. I don't think we're going to see a candidate stands up and says well trump isn't the mag agendas over. And i think mitt romney had the right idea. We are going to see people who are going to say that but they will go down in flames very quickly. I can't wait to see both them saying it. And the plummeting inflames. We're out of time. Thank you. Victor davis hanson. The book is the dying citizen. Appreciate your time. thank you for having me..

"Book the dying citizen. How progressive elites tribalism oxford comma and globalization are destroying the idea of america. You're just making a point. And you were about to give us another example of what you were describing. I don't know if you remember. I do we that we have people like nancy pelosi. That violates the corentin. She insists on others to get our hair done. Are we have these. Various mayors who break out or gavin. Newsom has to eat at the french longed remember. They always violate their own norms. In the most elite refined sophisticated manner but even have the marxist shock troops of this revolution that we're fighting phyllis cuellar's fourth house. It's an all white to tahonga. That has raked in zillions with yes with. Blm black lives matter. She cares so much about the poor that she has a fourth house. Isn't that sweet. I want to ask you when you talk about. Why they're doing this in the name of equality and so on and so forth isn't it ultimately irrelevant. Of course it's irrelevant in other words if we the people don't give them permission to do this they must not do it. They have no right to do it. So what they're doing is in contravention of the whole idea of america that we the people choose our leaders to do what we need them to do. They are comfortable with that. So they're looking for a way around it. And they've been finding ways around it and i and i mentioned that in the book that what i just said is what we used to say and scholarship. The pro faucets the pretexts. That's what they say they want a quality and they're really do try to enact it out but it's really about their desire for power. Just like the bolsheviks. Jack ovens they want power among lead and they're very frustrated angry people a lot of them are people that were highly educated and they feel that their talents have not been appreciated. Or they haven't made enough money or they worship people who have made more money or they made a lot of money and yet they feel. I have all this money. i'm mark zuckerberg. Um i'm bill gates but whereas the power where's the power that goes with it. So they want power and they want the ability to target and focus on the hated middle class. The middle class again does not have their culture while they're sophistication and it does not have the romance of the poor and so they feel you know these are the bangle by the snowmobile. Buying the jetskis by creepy people that want to come up to our level but we don't want them around they're deplorables or cleaners trump their greg's there donald trump and his minions did god come into this at all for you i mean of course the founders You know wrote considerably about a morality and religion and tocqueville talks about that. You really cannot have the kind of freedom and self government that we have had without some kind of faith. Virtue some mechanisms for that because what i notice over and over. Is that the places where there is the least freedom. Their biggest enemy is usually communities of faith. Whether it's the wieger muslims or the christians that that people in this elite zone they have a kind of a secular mentality in their threatened by people who answer to a higher authority does that. I don't know if that comes into the book or into your own thing in both. And i try to point out that when you talk of as they do. Critical theory are critical. Legal theory are critical. Racial theory our new monetary theory. All of these things are at odds with nature in other words. If you print money you do have to really pay it back on. Like new monetary theory critical race. Theory says you can be racist racist but it's still racism so our law and critical legal theory says our laws are just construct that protect the wealthy the white male and they don't represent deterrence about theft or murder but law has a natural element to it. It's a nate. Were born with sort of transcendent idea of right and wrong. That comes on the creator. And so that's one thing. They will not acknowledge that these laws that we make reflect that that that truth and the second is it is true that when you combine free market capitalism with constitutional government you create a level of freedom and affluence and leisure that was never seen. And we're very unique. We have this huge space by coastal continent. But there had to be something. Blessed is the founder saw. There had to be some divine providence. That allow this particular country to be so powerful so instrumental so moral in a way that even at our worst moments like getting out of afghanistan no other country in periods of humiliation and stupidity. Woods have as general. Mackenzie said no worries. All of the afghan refugees will be having culturally sensitive food. And i mean that impulse is sort of. i don't know what it is. But it's it's can be warped but it's this american idea that we really really really really wanna be good and we really really really wanna be diviner perfect and that can be very detrimental. But it still shows you. That deeply imprinted upon story is the idea that morality. Well obviously the the problem is. They've they've divorced that from its roots in other words. They have now acted as though they invented this and they can. They can kick away the place that it i think. They've made it into a second religion in the sense of the enlightenment. They think that god is raw. Tio reason and it's reasonable to do this but they don't realize it some of the things that they want to do our irrational and wire. They irrational because they're based on higher moral code even they wanna attributed to reason our sensitivity our education. But it's not really at the impulses to be turned this the cheek the other cheek and followed the sermon on how we're going to be right back. Folks talking to victor davis hanson.

"It's just a joy to speak with you because you bring some historical perspective. Oftentimes i think people are weary of the news cycle and it's just a constant static. It sounds like we know. Everything's horrible but to understand where it came from how we got here. How we might get out. I think we need the perspective because it does give us hope. So you do believe that even given the current tremendous breakdown That's everywhere in the culture. You you see hope. I guess my question is there. Are people today who seem emboldened in wielding naked power in lying. They don't seem to have the code They don't believe in virtue they believe in power and they seem less troubled journalistic class the medical establishment. They they seem to have come on moored from Something that held us all together. That's kind of what concerns me most because if you're fighting an enemy that doesn't play by the same rules you've got a bigger problem. I was looking for more than a. Yes or no answer. I'm sorry you cut out. But i can hear you now. I guess what i'm saying. Is that and i tried to do that in the book that we're not alone. We have history to guide us in. It has been a trademark across time and space that the left feels that the means that you talked about are justified by their more noble ends nobility defined as radical quality result. And so they feel that what you line. The russian collusion hoax or joe biden son. Hunters laptop is russian. Disinformation or anthony fao cheese e saying. I had no role in the gain of function research. These all of that is okay. Because the ultimate end that is making sure the quote people are equal or that their fair it justifies them and they and they feel that they have a right that you and i don't have is superior moral beings to us. They don't call it lying. They call it a noble live when anthony says on one day. Don't wear mouse than where mouse and where to mask or xenophobic. To have a travel ban. Yes then maybe not. He said himself that he lied on about mao. So there wouldn't be a quote on quote run on mask and they've been doing that with everything you said. Why did james clapper say lied under oath and say this. Nsa does not spy on people. Why did john brennan say under oath. We've never killed anybody. Drones assignations or. I don't spy on senate staffer computer. Or why did james me say. I can't remember under two hundred forty five times or white robert mueller. When asked the font about the font of the whole collusion hoax the steele dossier and fusion. Gps he said under. I have no idea what you're talking about. And i feel that they don't they field. They're not lying. They're just doing what's necessary for the greater good and the media and they don't care about the people because they found out. In the twenty first century they can run the country with the media with social media with the corporate boardroom with k. Through twelve of the academic world with foundations that that twenty percent of the population. It's highly educated professional. They have such power over communications in this electronic global age. They don't the joe biden doesn't even try to get a fifty one percent consensus. He said yesterday. I came in and there were four million. That's all he knows. There were seventeen million people vaccinated. He just lied because he knew that the media wouldn't say it. And then people like you and eric our listeners. Today probably think well. How can he he. He's non kumble's mint as he doesn't he doesn't even finish sentences. He won't answer questions. He doesn't try to build a consensus. He just says. Pay your fair share and the tactic. We're not getting enough taxes when he welched out on five hundred thousand dollars of taxes we're told and yet the left would say we don't care if maybe this is liberated. He's you say that he's non minto. What are you gonna do about that. Are you going to do. That's the question attitude. Do you think we'll be able to do anything about it. That's the first question i think. If we get the vocabulary we understand without being shrill we just say listen. These are not democrats. They're not progressive. These are hardcore socialist-marxism. I know there's a lot of naive that follow them. That may not be but when you rename the country from seventeen seventy six basically. Its founding brand sixteen. Nineteen you tear down statues or you counsel people out your jacqueline's and bolsheviks and you've got to say that to them and then when you have racism to fight racism or discrimination to fight discrimination racist this be honest about it and we don't use that terminology we don't say these are jakobsen bolsheviks bolsheviks and they're racist and they want to destroy a country and yet they're out the trough on the country The first thing that squad did those three congress women almost first thing they did. A upon assuming office was violate campaign financing. They were all under audit for using campaign funds in dishonest way. And the second thing they did was promulgate antisemitic tropes. No-one said a word and they knew that. And so we've got to say to people we don't care what background you are. What color you are. What gender you are going to judge you on what you say and what you do and once you start doing that and i think the left the right has a really good argument because it's the party of the middle class now. I should say to the people check go by zip codes. Go by congressional districts per capita income by any measure you want to use. The democratic left bolshevik party is the party of the super rich and subsidize for and the lower middle and upper middle and middle classes or conservative. Just thirty or so seconds left but it seems to me that a big part of the success of the marxist left i has been their ability using the media to convince us that most people think that way. If you don't think that way you're the anomaly. I think part of what you do. And i do is we try to encourage people to say that. No no no no no. You're quite right. They're crazy you're not crazy and most of us know they're crazy when you say you can't put on a birth certificate. The american medical cessation said we can no longer put male or female on a birth certificate. We all know that's crazy and we simply have to encourage each other that that's the that's the case. So final fifteen seconds. Forgive me. I think all of us have to say that we have to speak honestly and and attack that revisionism and we have to expect the first way of cancel culture and back but once it bounces off you and you survive it your liberated you say. What is that all you can do. I'm still here and once you get that attitude. I think you're liberated you'll be successful fantastic books. The book is the dying citizen. Victor davis.

"You're you're from the the west coast but when i think of what trump was up against I feel like it's very similar to what fiorello laguardia was up against in trying to dismantle the extraordinarily a corrupt machine of the boss tweeds machine tammany hall in new york. It was such entrenched decades-long corruption that to be able to pull it apart to deregulate to fire those people. It really takes somebody who out of the gate is dedicated. More than anything else to doing that. And i i get the impression that trump. He woke up slowly till the horror when they came after general. Flynn in the way that they did but He he didn't really have time to react. Yeah i think. That's a good point. And i try to point out in the book. I don't use this metaphor but it's kind of like punching java the hut in the stomach you can punch his heart as you want. But there's so many folds of fat there that he's not going to feel it. I mean they have come on a brilliant paradigm. The left is in cooperation or institution. So you have austin giving us lectures on proportionate representation the military or on white rage or chief of naval operations. Golladay on all of this and you think yourself or these principal people know they all come out of raytheon. They go back to locking it or they go to. General dynamics we have Cuellar's beal am marxist co-founder she's on house number four and manga canyon or we've got the obamas with their twenty five million dollar and i think it was twenty five million dollar state lecturing us on the underclass at sixtieth birthday party with with the hell. Lots of the servants had mask on. Nobody else had mouse. So it's insidious that this very very wealthy privileged group of people black and white brown of every ethnic and racial identification. Lebron james was billion dollar. Wealth open ninety million dollar mon- they're all lecturing us in woke terms and that becomes almost an insurance policy and the crisis terms against criticism of selves becomes a medieval tenants. Feel guilty but not guilty enough to do anything. That's poverty or the middle class. But what. I'm getting out is. It's very hard to fight the left. When they're hyper capitalist. They make john d. Rockefeller looked like pikers. Bill gates you know and yet they're woke and so they hate capitalism in the abstract. They're always they're out there in spirit but they're there at the trough. We're we figured that paradigm out you when we come back. We'll continue the conversation. Talking to victor davis hanson. New book the citizen folks. Don't go away we're talking to.

"Even you written a lot older than your. You've you've written a. I'm glad i fooled you. We've written a. You've written a lot of important books. you've been a classics professor for decades. Your new book is called the dying citizen. How progressive elites tribalism and globalization are destroying the idea of america. I'm always mortified. When someone i trust like you Sees what i see. Because i prefer to be suffering from from emotionalism or something you know and you write about it in this book that we're facing now is simply unprecedented. What do you say in the book about. What do you think what you think is possible in terms of of dealing with it. That's always gotta be my first question. Do you think it's possible for us to pull out of this death. Spiral i identify sick symptoms of three from the organic natural historical forces that migrations into a country without borders and the disruption of a private space the destruction of the middle class tribalism which destroys civilization. And then the elite postmodern forces that are destroying citizenship. And that's kind of a euphemism for the country as you as you suggest. And that's this administrative state. These two million people. It can be anybody from general milley to james comey and you know the score. And then people who are trying to change the constitution the customs whether it's the full buster or the electoral college fifty state union and then finally this globalization that our first allegiance to go to the un who were going to you know on the invitation from secretary. Blinken going to see whether we're racist or not so. All of those things can be reversed is what i'm trying to say because we we had a very controversial president but let's admit that after four years we had a wall and had a tough immigration policy and we had legal only immigration for about six months finally after all those lawsuits and we were going before. Eric floyd i think people realize they were getting sick of identity. Politics is here in california even after we voted remember in two thousand twenty to reject affirmative action in the blue state in the union the effort to try to throw away pop to nine and the middle class under donald trump for the first time in twelve years had a real increase in wages. There were a lot of talk about the one point. Seven trillion dollar debt and student loans and the culpability at universities and the government had they were so there was an effort. We didn't have this eroding seven percent. Parental inflation that we have now so there were good signs that we were onto something and then as far as the administrative state he deregulated more than anybody had in four years. It didn't dent the administrative state but it was a start. And he as you know. When i will he went into the arena as a gladiator. You went mono mono with james komi and james clapper and andrew mccabe and all of those pentagon generals on elected and he fought with him. He did crew often cross fashion but he was the only person my memory who said there is such a thing as a deep state. You're going to have to deal with it. And he you know he got into the election reads but there were reasons to question one hundred million people voting for the first time in history not on election day and so he was trying to do things globalization. Of course he got. Out of the paris accord he got out of the iranian according recalibrated against china in a way we hadn't seen so what i'm getting out if you have somebody who has the right agenda but his controversial and by that i mean eric i think sometimes trump got mad but he didn't get even if you know what i mean by. That's a big point. Very few people say that. And i think you're quite right. It's it seems to me counterintuitive. Because you think of trump as a you know almost belligerent. He's a he's a he's a warrior and yet you're quite right and i've heard this said many times that he didn't do what was necessary because like most of us he thought he would have more time. Yes i think he would have been the second administration but take dr fallacy. I- incentive saying that dr foul cheetos a ball like a girl and have a gratuitous insult and then gives superficial sympathy for dr paltrow. Why not put your arm around him once you've signed him up and say this is a loyal servant. He's eighty years old. He did heroic work during the aids crisis. He's given me an valuable advice. And i just can't draw on him anymore. I don't want to burden them anymore. He will be retiring tomorrow and if he had done things like that about the people around him that we're giving them terrible advice and then nullifying his Efforts whether it was anonymous in the deep state or all of these pseudo impeachment but he he he never did that he just got these verbal joust and then he didn't get even well and i've spoken to people as well Who say that. He kind of He could have fired people he needed to fire people. In other words he needed to drain the swamp as immediately as possible because these people every day they existed. They were working against him. I don't think he had people around him who really apprised him of you know an existential threat to him and to the country i don't think so either. And so my point was that given these problems of having one person in his seventies with no prior military or political experience. Come in and have the entire. Bipartisan establishment oppose him. Remember rosa brooks the pin avant pentagon council wrote an article in foreign policy. Seven days after he was president. This was a high ranking pentagon official under obama saying that we should either immediately evoked the twenty fifth amendment are starting peach mint or have a military coup words not mine and so he was up against forces that cosmic forces media wall street corporations entertainment professional sports k. Through twelve academia. We've never seen them. Silicon valley coalescence such frantic frenzied fashion. So my point of all this is kind of a long excursions. But he was trying to do things that that i had identified and i was riding not about him but the citizenship and the erosion. We just talked about and he was successful on the border and a challenging identity politics and helping the middle class and talk challenging the deep state and if we have that agenda continuing and he could play of a senior role in it. I'm optimistic. i'm not pessimistic. And so i try to tell Accentuate that in the book. Especially the apple on that That went through the events after the election. You you're not..

Well i think You know it's been planned for decades. And i and their plan was broken in the in november. Eight th of two thousand sixteen. Obviously that was a big disruptive thing that it would have been world takeover and and anyone. That doesn't believe that if you have you seen the evidence. I've i've had ninety. Two percent of the cyber intrusions into our country came from china. We know the buildings. We know that the ip address we know the ideas that computers companies that were involved on these are public and private companies. That were involved.

History books are going to be written about the madness. I mean originally. I said this is our reichstag fire. How the nazis used that to bully their opponents into submission. I never never thought. Never thought in america. I would see something like this. The january sixth thing is that you.

"I'm John that Sir Victor Davis Hanson at the Hoover Institution is there with me and we're going to reflect upon what little we know of the corona virus tragedy in China what little we know is that the World Health Organization days later is is declared a global emergency that a series of national airlines are shutting down traffic to one point three billion people creating China as an island in the air we also know that right now we do not have an origin of the coronavirus nor do we have good details on the transmissibility ray the infection right nor do we know how long the incubation period is we don't have six numbers so I want to go to how the Chinese people are responding to the fact that tens of millions of their compatriots are in quarantine A. K. locked in their their cities without ability to drive on the roads for to get out they're responding with a sense of humor Victor I report to something I learned twenty four hours ago for my colleague Arthur Waldron at the university of Pennsylvania he has family on the mainland who were to visit him during spring festival the Chinese New Year but could not because of the coronavirus chose not to and that was why but in any event I learned from ours there that the Chinese people on wave alive well and their social media which is behind a paywall or in many instances behind the great wall of China the censorship aware that they're being watched by their internet police are the big the most common phrase that over the last twenty four hours is twenty four hours out of date is where is trump where is trump where is trump repeated almost at the end of every transmission talking about how many people have been locked up where people are with the hospitals are saying what the lines are where the mass I wear is trump I was puzzled when I first heard it as you were when I first told to and you all think what they want Donald Trump come out one of the Democrats will they yelling for the president no that's their way of saying where is she they would know they be cut off and censored and persecuted if they use the hollowed name of their president for life so they say where is she Victor I think they have a sense of humor how do you read this I agree but their own I mean it from what we've learned already I think their travel travel interest in Greenwood so big partner Connie doesn't exist anymore right and that their supply chain of been interrupted is far worse than the two thousand three or four sars epidemic the economy is much more sophisticated now much more dependent and then when you factor in John that they've had this embarrassing violent confrontation with Hong Kong and trump seems to be getting the upper hand in the trade war with them and the people around the world or learning about this one million move some workers that are in re education camps this it's almost as if like this entire ever was laden ever since is collapsing and I I think it I think it's the worry is not just the virus but China's role in the entire world but the damage is able to do the people it's so big so wealthy and yet so fragile and sorry it's it's almost as if it's just a shell of the nation and it's kind of scary because men much of the world economy depends on it and yet it looks like it's imploding before very I'd based on its official that seat in this information yes you cannot trust the information coming out which is how I read Russia closing its border Russia its allies close the border these national airlines closing down traffic you don't trust the numbers they're giving us nor the origin which we don't know of the coronavirus but I'm gonna go to something we both talked about over the course of our lives because we're older Victor and we remember the first Cold War and we remember what it is to come up against a communist dictatorship that really is masking the fact that it's a despotic tyranny that realizes people the and and and derives power out of the barrel of a gun that's what China areas and we we don't cover it we're not going to cover it up because they're also participating in the international economy everybody there is a vaguely frightened of what will happen to them communism doesn't work communism doesn't work because there's no transparency there's no trust or the young people go listen to this Victor do they are they sympathetic to the lesson in front of them we have about a minute I think so I think it's one of many events that are revealing how rotten dishonest and dangerous the Chinese leadership there of it that five years ago we have this conversation John we would still be struggling with the romance right right right everybody everybody was impressed nobody have that it's a it's very primitive country in the hinterland that that you know even the how the virus originated people eating snakes and that they don't do that and strollers country if you you can't go to New York or San Francisco and go out and buy about the either or snake and you can't do that London or Paris and yet China have pretensions of being the leader of most sophisticated country in the world we we learned that once you get the needs of the nearer western veneer of China it's a very backward very poor country and and that operates on premises that are not westerner transparent where is trump.

"Columbine Victor Davis Hanson, had, it is the revitalization of the American energy sector, the normalcy, the normality of Washington DC was that we were going to always be a net importer of energy that what with climate change, but we, we, we couldn't start destroying our own environment and go get oil. It was just cleaner and easier to buy it. Plus, we needed to spend money with our allies to make sure that he didn't do the same old thinking that subordinates us under the guise of somehow, making a safer and more light. Well, since Donald Trump was elected three million more barrels of American oil are being produced per day. Just since Trump took office, new pipelines, ensure that the United States is not just the world's greatest producer of natural gas. But maybe it's largest exporter as well. Trump blew up all those prognostications and replace them with an optimistic agenda that the working and middle-class deserve, affordable energy that the US could produce fossil fuels more cleanly wisely and efficiently than the Middle East. And by the way, gasoline prices are under way back down. Again, not something the democrat party is very excited about Trump continues to try to do something about the open border situation. But all of this is it's it serves as a great reminder of the way things were when Trump was elected, which tells us why he was elected reminds us and a half years ago. And that who Trump naturally is, is what people elected. Not somebody programmed to be the way he isn't that somebody advised to be the way he is. But somebody who is the way he is a quick time out here, folks, I know a short segment there, but they all short in the end.

"Is Victor Davis Hanson, author of the brand new bestseller the case for Trump victory. L F six minutes. I wanna finish with just a couple of thoughts one. I'm kind of depressed because you realize that I was at the Aspen security forum last summer when rod Rosenstein came in greeted like a conquering hero by the left lefties symbol there. It was sort of a JCP awake. And I think of him as a as a fine public service. But if you line up, Lebanon's Augusta's and Mark Anthony, he's definitely the Lapidus of that bunch. And then I wonder whether or not virtue is ever going to return to America in the way that, you know, Alfred the great in the Netflix series that kingdom was a virtue based ruler. Are we in a post character world now? I think in some ways we are. But I think part of it is that we confused means and ends we're in a progressive era where people said that radical Galateri knows quality result or French revolutionary doctrine. If so wonderful that it justifies any means necessary to cheat it so we have Jim rooting for New York Times since one thousand sixteen years, no longer journalistic jurisprudence, you don't really have to be disinterested. Because Trump's is so beyond the pale. And I think that's we've slid into this idea that we're not going to be empirical interested or judge things on the facts because the ultimate goal of a quality at the end of the not the outset. But at the end result justifies, any means or any method that you need to get there. I see this helped me mostly on the left. I think right is basically live and let live and it's not a hundred percent. Tally of your person and your time to be political. But with elapsed throughout history. It always is. Well, here's why I'm a little bit optimistic. I just wanted to share this. There's a person that the president hasn't nickname to as opposed him. That's the chief Justice. He hasn't. He hasn't given him the nickname, and he's added Gorsuch and Cavanaugh to his number. And I actually am optimistic that if they get back to the framing into to classical liberalism that we could have a renaissance in many different ways, and we could actually compete with China if we don't get back to that. I don't know how we do. But if we do get back to that, and it's really the courts and military spending. And that's why I think he's going to win reelection victory because they're going to nominate a nutter. Yes. And what are they gonna nominate you they're gonna nominate basically candidate for partial birth or even infanticide as we saw in Virginia circus, and they're gonna nominate a party that can't secure the border because they believe it shouldn't be secure. Yes, they're not against and we're gonna. Parties at once. Free college tuition even know kid on that forklift eighteen and never went to college will be out to pay for for pajama boy profile going on choice thirty taking units at a college. That's going to be free, and we're gonna have Medicare for all violate the old bond. You'll trust it of the idea that you contribute when you're young. And then you enjoy the benefits with your old pack between generations, they're going to destroy that. They're going to have a wealthy tax. They wanna have a seventy or even ninety percent top rate. That's not a sustainable agenda is based on. We hate Trump so much that we can bring all this in because you will vote against Trump. And then you'll give us a pass without looking at you know, in a very and they got a false positive. Did they not get a false positive in two thousand eighteen you, and I have a theory of twenty eighteen but they have a false positive. They think it's gonna work. They did. And they don't realize it in terms of traditional midterm elections during the president's first term, they get okay and the house the average loss. Twenty-five seats. They won perhaps thirty nine. But usually you don't pick up two Senate seats like Trump did Obama lost. I think six and and Clinton lost eight and ninety four in the Senate Trump picked up two maybe three. So it wasn't that bad. It was more or less typical of every president. But they have recalibrated that as a referendum to go even harder left, and I would add in the course of this. He's added bardo. His cabinet Bolton to his NSA Pompeo at state you write about this. He's been upping his team as he moved along, which is very important for reelect. He is and he's got people. I I was a big fan of Madison McMaster like the both. But these new people are more ideologically tuned to the Trump agenda and they're just as confident. And so you're right. He's professionalizing this cabinet, and they're very, and they're not, quote, unquote, the adults in the room that have to watch over. Trump. They really liked company respect him. And they understand what he wants. And then they implemented in a methodical and institutionalize ways. So he's much better with this this cabinet, and that that's going to permeate. It's already permeate permeating the State Department and national Security Council and defense where I think people understand that. If you say Trump is not there's gonna be consequences. There wasn't there wasn't before. And there isn't and boy it's going to be a wild ride and the best way to begin the ride is to know how it goes. And how it goes as laid out.
