The Cultural Roots of American Power

Regrettably, a replay of this event is not available.

~ A Russell Kirk Lecture ~

America is a unique phenomenon in world history, the greatest success story among the world's nations and one that defies the usual classifications of social science. It also might become history's greatest tragedy, a promise unfulfilled due to civilizational fatigue. America flourished on the strength of a singular political and religious culture. To revive American power we require a deeper account of our culture and its role in shaping America's destiny.
