Sen. Mike Lee On The Founders, Social Capital, And The Role Of Government

Senator Mike Lee joins Ben Domenech on The Federalist Radio Hour to discuss his new book about America’s founders.


Senator Mike Lee joins the Federalist Radio Hour to discuss his new book, “Written Out of History: The Forgotten Founders Who Fought Big Government.” Lee also explains his new research initiative, the “Social Capital Project” and how it can measure the health of our society and institutions.

“Right now we don’t even know exactly what we don’t know. This project represented the first step in that direction, toward trying to find out what is happening in America and then we can start to unravel why,” Lee said.

Lee also discusses the role of faith, Charles Murray, and the future of Congress. “Congress is ready to put it’s Article I pants back on,” he said. “Congress is in fact the lawmaking organ within the federal government and it needs to start acting like it.”
