Ep. 170: For Responsibility, Against Blame
1 day ago
In 2000, when he was running for president, George W. Bush said he wanted to encourage "a culture of responsibility." He wanted to be "the responsibility president." Then came 9/11 and the thrust of his presidency changed. At any rate, Jay recalls Bush in this conversation with David L. Bahnsen, the author of "Crisis of Responsibility: Our Cultural Addiction to Blame and How You Can Cure It." This has to do with money, drugs, immigration, and a lot more. Bahnsen is a foe of bogeymen and scapegoats. Jay says that Bahnsen's words are music to his ears, and they may be to yours, too. In any case, Bahnsen is a man worth listening to, for he goes to the heart of America's problems.
