Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
This week, Daniel Hannan, the one and only, dropped by National Review headquarters in New York. Taking advantage, Jay sat down with him for a “Q&A.” Hannan, as you know, is the British writer-politician extraordinaire.
With Jay, he discusses the nature of America. And then the question of national self-determination: What right do the Catalonians and Kurds have? Everyone can’t have his own country, can he?
Then there is the issue of immigration. In every generation, people say, “Well, previous immigration was okay, but now it’s too much and the people won’t assimilate.” Is it at last true?
Other major topics are nationalism and populism. Toward the end, there is discussion of two big British figures, Churchill and Balfour.
Dan Hannan is, among other things, an excellent teacher – he teaches as he talks, effortlessly. Always worth a listen.
