About this Episode

Special Guest - Gerald Russello, editor of University Bookman at the Russell Kirk Center, joins our discussion.

Reno believes American elites forged a general theory of society following WWII to prevent another rise of totalitarianism. This "postwar consensus" involved a weakening of the "Strong Gods" - the objects of men's love and devotion. He believes this loss is driving populism in the West.
