Victor Davis Hanson: The Dying Citizen

Broadcast Running Time: 28:50

What does it mean to be a citizen?  We all know traditionally what the answer is, but with globalism rearing its ugly head, the definition may well have become meaningless.  Back with us today by popular demand is Victor Davis Hanson (victorhanson.com), Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution.  He explains the globalists’ motives in destroying national citizenry in favor of a global one, making sense of the turmoil we see in the news and in society.  But the national citizenry is pushing back.  He even discusses whether or not those in the Biden administration understand that their actions are creating chaos or if they are completely incompetent.  Fascinating conversation with the great Victor Davis Hanson!

Most of human history is full of the stories of peasants, subjects, or tribes. The concept of the “citizen,” an idea we take for granted, is historically quite rare – and was, until recently, amongst America’s most profoundly cherished ideals. But without shock treatment, American citizenship as we have known it may soon vanish.
