Can political philosophy help us think about Trump and contemporary America?
In a 2017 essay reprinted in his new book Twilight of the American Century, Andrew Bacevich comments
Like it or not, the president of the United States embodies America itself. The individual inhabiting the White House has become the preeminent symbol of who we are and what we represent as a nation and a people. In a fundamental sense, he is us.
He discusses this observation and more in this new episode of Liberty Law Talk.
