Title:Victor Davis Hanson | Restoring the Idea of Liberty in America

September 8, 2021 This video features the very timely presentation by Dr. Victor Davis Hanson at Hillsdale College, in Hillsdale, MI, on topics from his bestselling book, "The Dying Citizen: How Progressive Elites, Tribalism, and Globalization Are Destroying the Idea of America." He is introduced by Dr. Mark A. Kalthoff, the Henry Salvatori Chair in History and Traditional Values and Dean of Faculty at Hillsdale College. www.hillsdale.edu/ “Mr. Hanson, an accomplished classicist and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, is one of the great amalgamators of American political writing. He has a particular gift for bringing together a dizzying array of events, controversies and ideas and making sense of them by advancing a coherent argument that incorporates thousands of years of history… Mr. Hanson hits hard, but I don’t find his analysis unfair or partisan. There is enormous value, moreover, in thinking about toxic political developments not as problems of the moment but as destructive pathologies to which all societies are prone at all times.” —"Wall Street Journal" “Indispensable… Hanson’s immensely erudite and inspiriting book offers a most welcome corrective to those influential forces and doctrines in our midst that conspire to delegitimize the citizen and citizenship as such. In doing so, he provides us with hope that our society still has within it significant powers of rejuvenation.” —"National Review" “As Victor Davis Hanson shows in his learned, powerful, and troubling new book, 'The Dying Citizen,' the steady devolution of citizenship speaks volumes about where we are today and where we seem to be heading… Hanson lays out this grim diagnosis with his usual clarity and brilliance, moving easily from his deep specialized knowledge of the ancient Greek and Roman world through savvy observations about present-day politics and American society.” —"The New Criterion" “Citizenship brings all the enduring principles of democracy into the sphere of the individual. It honors the human need for a collective identity even as it makes room for the individual to pursue happiness. In this remarkably illuminating book, Victor Davis Hanson shows how so many contemporary problems—identity politics, the border crisis, bloated government, etc.—have only worsened for the lack of a vigorous and clarifying idea of citizenship. In this deeply democratic idea, Hanson points to a way beyond what ails us.” —Shelby Steele, author of "Shame" ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Victor Davis Hanson is the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow in the Hoover Institution, the Wayne and Marcia Buske Distinguished Fellow in History at Hillsdale College, and a Member of the Board of Advisors for both the Independent Institute as well as the quarterly journal, "The Independent Review: A Journal of Political Economy."
