Go See a Star War | The Roundtable Ep. 219

Filled with apparent panic at Biden’s low standing among “the youth,” the Administration pulled out all the stops this week with a press conference featuring…Mark Hamill? Was that the best they could do? Maybe, as student riots and protests continue to emphasize Biden’s rowdy kids problem–not that the Right is quite sure how to respond to campus antisemitism, either. Elsewhere in academia, the rolling replicability crisis continues apace, indicating once again that data worship is a mistake. The editors survey the landscape of new age Star-Wars-ism, free speech unease, and COVID-style crises of authority.

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