Special Edition: Dr. John Marini on The Challenge of Modern Democracy

This week, while The American Mind‘s editors are off, Ryan Williams took the opportunity to sit down with Dr. John Marini. Against the background of the FBI’s unprecedented raid on Mar-a-Lago, which took place on the 48th anniversary of Richard Nixon’s resignation, the pair look back at Nixon’s experience with the administrative state as it relates to today. Plus: what can we do to bring government back into the purview of politics and wrench it from the clutches of an increasingly autonomous bureaucratic class?
