Episode Three: Codevilla and the American Classes
In episode three, we discuss the works of Angelo Codevilla, emeritus professor of international relations at Boston University. In particular, we discuss his book The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It.
In it, Codevilla distinguishes the American Ruling Class from the Country Class and enumerates the origins and peculiarities of both before going on to describe the failures of the former. In the end, he describes a prescription for restoring America with a revitalized Country Class brought back to relevance with a renewed sense of their place in American political life and local authority.
Naturally, we also talk about Urbit and its implications for such a project. Have a listen: Codevilla seems more prescient than ever just now.
