Make America Work Again | The Roundtable Ep. 14

The WHO becomes a political football guarded by Leftists, Globalization warps the political judgment of our bipartisan ruling class, and the mainstream American media teams up with Beijing’s propaganda machine.

Conservatism, Inc.: Made in China? | Segment 1

Our editors and publisher discuss J.D. Vance’s latest essay on the globalization of donor dollars and the impact on conservative ideas. The conservative playbook has failed by using economic globalization and falling prices as their solution for all problems. How do we decouple from China and focus on fixing the American worker?

Media’s Comorbidities | Segment 2

The mainstream media struggles to keep up with the news cycle and the gut level disconnect is real and so very “cringe.” The WHO is now a political football whose legitimacy has become a new rallying cry for the left. Matt compares the media to a dog with 3 brain cells and our editors ask how long before the media recognizes they’re headed for self-destruction? Timestamp: 30:20

Back to Our Plows | Segment 3

Matt and James discuss the increasing fruitlessness of mere argument, why writing fails and habits are formative, and the need for action and leadership to reshape American society. Timestamp: 49:57
