Lieutenant Colonel Bryan Price - Afghanistan, Counterterrorism, Seton Hall University... America will be (see episode note)
In this episode, I talk with Lieutenant Colonel Bryan Price about the current racial unrest, about meritocracy, the values, culture, and identity of this country.
We speak about the separation between the military and the government and of the current administration.
Lieutenant Colonel Bryan Price is known for his published research on terrorism and counterterrorism. He holds a B.S. from the U.S. Military Academy in U.S. history, an M.A. in international relations from St. Mary’s University (TX), and an M.A. and Ph.D. in political science from Stanford University.
Bryan and I talk about leadership -- he is the Founding Executive Director at the Buccino Leadership Institute at Seton Hall University.
During the interview, Bryan shared a story that exemplifies George Washington’s leadership skills, he then asked: “You can probably guess some individuals that that are in power today. What if they were the George Washington at that time? How differently would our country have a look like?”
I ask him if he thinks that the military will escort Donald Trump from the White House should the president loses the election and refuse to leave his office.
For my guest, American is a dream, not a reality. Yet he believes that American is the greatest experiment of democracy that the world has ever known and that's a worthwhile cause to fight for.
