A Conversation with Michael Anton
Michael Anton joins the Catholic Current 10.14.20
Michael Anton explains why 'woke tyranny' poses a grave threat to our freedom and to our country.
Michael Anton is a lecturer and research fellow at Hillsdale College, a senior fellow at the Claremont Institute, and a former national security official in the Trump administration.
Paul and Olivia discuss a bevy of political and philosophical topics with Michael Anton, former Deputy Assistant to President Trump for Strategic Communications and author of After the Flight 93 Election: The Vote that Saved America and What We Still Have to Lose. In this interview, we explore questions about President Trump and modern conservatism, how the Republican Party must move away from its market fundamentalism, the challenges posed by big tech and modern technology, and the philosophical roots of the current political crisis.
Elites remain out of touch with everyone, our institutions are broken, and some people on the Left and the Right are still in denial about how bad things have gotten. But at least CNN’s Don Lemon is good for a laugh.
