The author of "American Rule: How a Nation Conquered the World but Failed Its People" joins host Paul Roland

 

 

"American Rule is the story of how a myth constructed an empire and led to its downfall. It is the story of an ideology that changed the course of history and the men who have used it as a means to gain power, wealth, and dominion. It is the story of a philosophy rooted in the empowerment of the people that was perverted and harnessed to establish systems that failed the very people it purported to free."

--from the Preface to American Rule, by today's guest Jared Yates Sexton
