Americans knew previously they were intolerant, leftwing, and increasingly non-meritocratic.

Weimar America

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness Something eerie, something creepy, is happening in the world—and now in America as well.

The Unhinged Among Us

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness October 7 should have been an open-and-shut case of moral condemnation.

Can We Save our Universities?

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness It took the widely reported, repellent, and exempt wave of anti-Semitism and violent pro-Hamas protestors harassing Jews, finally to convince Americans that their own hallmark universities are illiberal centers of mediocrity and intolerance—and increasingly unsafe.
