Kevin McCarthy spoke for 8 and a half hours on Thursday night, wow. Who cares? What did he accomplish? Nothing. American Maxim’s Alaska correspondent Vince Guerra joins the podcast for the very first time, to share some information about the January 6 political prisoners being held in Washington, DC. Also, Kamala Harris is the first female president of the United States because Joe Biden needed something stuck up his butt. And since it’s Monday, and to cleanse that image from your mind, Max reads Psalm 5.

Human history is full of the stories of peasants, subjects, and tribes. Yet the concept of the “citizen” is historically rare—and was among America’s most valued ideals for over two centuries. But without shock treatment, warns historian Victor Davis Hanson, American citizenship as we have known it may soon vanish.

In The Dying Citizen, Hanson outlines the historical forces that led to this crisis. The evisceration of the middle class over the last fifty years has made many Americans dependent on the federal government. Open borders have undermined the idea of allegiance to a particular place. Identity politics have eradicated our collective civic sense of self. And a top-heavy administrative state has endangered personal liberty, along with formal efforts to weaken the Constitution.
