James Poulos is the Executive Editor of The American Mind, an online publication of the Claremont Institute. Poulos joins Ben Domenech on The Federalist Radio Hour for discussion on nationalism, the publishing of political opinions and why media outlets don’t believe Trumpism can be intellectualized.
“The way that the Founding put a regime framework on top of a people who had formed their character outside of the European experience with imperialism and nationalism was unique,” Poulos said. “People who want to tar American nationalism with the same brush that they tar nationalism generally are making a mistake.”
They also discuss the state of the Democratic Party in light of Obama’s legacy.
Poulos is the author of The Art of Being Free: How Alexis de Tocqueville Can Save Us from Ourselves.
