Topic

Does America still have a common political creed and culture? Are we merely a collection of disparate groups united by geography, or are there shared principles, commitments, and republican traditions that ought to bind us together? America is embroiled in a high-stakes battle regarding the answers to these fundamental questions. What will it take to restore a political culture unified around a common understanding of justice in America? And what will the consequences be if we don’t succeed?

The American Mind Podcast: The Roundtable Episode #22

The Lincoln Project puts out shamelessly deceitful (and laughably uninspired) propaganda insinuating President Trump is a racist. Google tries to demonetize the Federalist. Plus: Black Lives Matter rallies people to raise money for Black lives but instead funnels it to the Democrat Party and other activist groups. Our editors discuss the demonstrations of political power in the streets and the erasure of western history before our very eyes.

The ruling class goes full force in their efforts to unseat our elected president. Woke channels brainwash children with a gnostic leftist fantasy, and those who should know better sadly capitulate.
