Charles Haywood on the Fragility of the Regime
Manage episode 349444391 series 3348004
Greetings all. Charles Haywood, of The Worthy House blog, is one of my intellectual inspirations, and a resource to anyone who wants to understand our historical political and cultural moment. He deigned an essay of mine worthy of response, and granted me two hours to pick his brain and challenge some of his positions. It was an honor and a pleasure, and we plan to do this again soon! For context, before or after, I suggest you read the three essays on his blog that we discuss here:
On the Fragility of the Current Regime
On the Future Ascent of a Caesar
And my response to his appearance on Aaron Macintyre’s show: Is the “Regime” weak?
As I mentioned last week on my sub stack (subscribe here!!) my computer crashed. I got it back up (lost everything, including my intro), but somethings off with the sound. I’m terribly embarrassed by my sound here, and wouldn’t normally run this, but he’s such a high value guest and was so gracious to come on, I have to run with it. I hope Charles doesn’t mind, and by next episode I hope to have it fixed.
