A Cultural Watershed: Digging Deep Into the Cultural Context of Left Policies

Victor Davis Hanson lights up the subject of what is revolutionizing American culture: the modern Left’s war on family, law, and tradition. Much is being lost, but what was won by our ancestors asks cohost Sami Winc who presses VDH for the meaning of the 4th of July. Listen for our invitation at the end of the podcast to join a toast at 5pm PST on July 4th [smiling emojis].

  1. Not only one of the best podcast by Sami and Dr. Hanson but extremely timely as we begin celebrating the greatest nation.
    As I age, I have become more like my father but realize I could not do the things he and my uncles did but that goodness there are a few today who can.
    Not perfect but the best, “If we can keep it”. 5PM PST I’ll raise a toast to the great generations that preceeded the current self serving ones.

    Excellent podcast. Indeed so Dr. Hanson & Sami, our glasses will be tipped at the specified hour with a constitutional toast!

    Thank you Dr Hanson and Sami for the truly inspiring podcast about who we are and to whom we owe so much! At 5pm I will raise that toast to my 10 dear friends lost over 50 yrs ago when we were all young and soldiers then. Never forgotten and always mindful of what is at stake and thankful that I have found this most insightful man. May God Bless this Nation and you Dr Hanson! Sami this makes 3 listeners this glorious Day of Independence.

    “…they did build the computer you work on…”

    Big deal. The men who built the roads, the aqueducts, and every other achievement of previous generations didn’t need digital computers to do that work. The Greeks, the Romans, the Europeans who built cathedrals, the builders of the Great Wall, or Angkor Wat, or the pyramids in Egypt, didn’t have digital computers. In a comparison of tools, a PC is a nice-to-have, but not essential. I would be curious to see the percentages, but I suspect that digital technology is applied far more to entertainment than it is to essential civil applications.

    1. Banking, international finance, large scale economic models all come to mind. Then there’s ease of information sharing. It’s also a major part of medical technology and military tech. I don’t like the machine either, but it plays a huge part in every part of our modern world.

      We could all be virtuous cavemen. On the other hand, there is no virtue in making things harder than they need to be. The Nazis did great evil with junk tech and we beat them with superior tech. America’s stabilizing hegemony is still a function of her superior tech.

      UHH, you just used this amazing technology to listening to this Podcast, store it if you like and leave a message almost instantly transmitted to everyone logged in. In 1930 – I’m thinking you never would have heard this discussion or participated. I could go on, aside from television, satellite technologies, bio-science discoveries, etc. etc. I would say there is much that has “been built.” oppss, I forgot, jet passenger planes, etc. Now, I think the more measured thing to say about generational achievements is that each generation had/has them, but unfortunately sometimes the young and closed minded do not reflect on them, the difficulty, the amazing discoveries etc. Now, that is in my mind a sin, history is something everyone needs to appreciate.

  5. VDH is the font of wisdom in our current age. Steeped in history, war, and political acumen, he is a joy to hear.
