The Saturday Interview: Victor Davis Hanson ‘therapeutic’ culture heart of U.S. problem

Victor Davis Hanson has a tragic view of the universe. It comes naturally. As a former professor of classics, decades of working with Homer, Sophocles, Virgil and Horace, Greek history and studying ancient warfare, he says, have taught him that there are certain “immutable laws.” We all age and die. Humans are selfish. Power is might.

Of course, being a farmer has a way of nurturing a certain fatalism, too. Though he’s a winner of the National Humanities Medal and the $250,000 Bradley Prize for intellectual accomplishment, when Mr. Hanson’s not working at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, he’s on the three-hour drive to, or at, his San Joaquin valley raisin grape farm in Selma County, the poorest county in California.

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
