Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Critics see Trump as an abomination, but he is also one of us. So says Andrew Bacevich scholar and author of the forthcoming book Twilight of the American Century. He explains in this podcast that Trump is one of a nation of narcissists (selfies anyone?). Sixty plus million voted to repudiate the long standing policy consensus but got more of the same. Economic inequality, globalization for the benefit of the few, permanent wars: these are the real issues and the obsession with Trump is basically a shiny object serving to distract us from what needs to be done. All these problems predate Trump and our fixation with Trump impedes solutions. A surprising and thoughtful analysis from this widely respected history scholar.
