Art historian and national security advisor to Republican Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, Dr. Victoria Coates sits down with Ben Weingarten of Encounter Books to discuss her new book “David’s Sling: A History of Democracy in Ten Works of Art.” During the interview, Dr. Coates and Ben discuss a wide variety of topics, including the indelible link between democracy and creativity, the significance of great works of art and architecture in the history of freedom from Michelangelo’s David to the Parthenon and Picasso’s Guernica, why the entrepreneurial art community endorses political stances anathema to the freedom that sustains it, and everything you would ever want to know about Sen.

On this latter point, among other subjects Dr. Coates and Ben discuss the principles that form the Cruz Doctrine, who in the foreign policy sphere truly carries the mantle of Jeanne Kirkpatrick, what “winning” in the Middle East would look like for America under a President Cruz, Saudi Arabia vs. Iran, whether America has a responsibility under NATO to defend an Islamic supremacist Turkish regime against Russia, how a President Cruz would handle an ascendant Russia, the long-term threat posed by China and how to counter her, the greatest threat to America’s national interest we are most underestimating or ignoring, and much more.
