Ep. 23 - Brad Thompson on the Philosophy of the Founding

February 5, 2021

Rob Tracinski talks with Brad Thompson, author of America's Revolutionary Mind, about the philosophical ideas behind the founding of America. The conversation includes: the Declaration of Independence as an ideological road map to the founding of America, the Enlightenment religion of the founders, the meaning of equality, America's moral awakening on slavery, the actual "beau ideal" of communism, and the rise of illiberal conservatives and the "Bronze Age Pervert."
