Do You Know the Enemy? ft. Glenn Ellmers | The Roundtable Ep. 117

The Know Your Enemy podcast recently accused Claremont of misunderstanding the old civil war, and irresponsibly predicting–or perhaps yearning for–a new one. The editors respond with the help of special guest Glenn Ellmers, Claremont Scholar and author of The Soul of Politics, a book on Claremont’s intellectual godfather Harry V. Jaffa. Plus: Elon Musk officially bought Twitter and conservatives are noticing that they’re being unshackled from shadow suppression. But who is Elon Musk and does the Right want to make him its champion?

The American Mind presents a range of perspectives. Views are writers’ own and do not necessarily represent those of The Claremont Institute.

The American Mind is a publication of the Claremont Institute, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to restoring the principles of the American Founding to their rightful, preeminent authority in our national life.
