In this first part of “The Roots of America's Third Reconstruction,” we look at some of the fruit of America's core ideological rot. Eric discusses the recent California recall, and Jacob discusses General Mark Milley's usurpation, the vaccine mandate, and how the conservative movement has thwarted ordinary people from mobilizing against institutional tyranny.
In part 2, on September 20, we'll dive deep into the origins of that rot. We'll look at how one family of historians helped plant the seeds in the 1930s and how a member of that family has watered them ever since.
