If politics is upstream from culture, Americans need a serious reality check. Ruling elites have used the deterioration of civil society to consolidate their power in a doomed effort to push an unpopular agenda. That has to change.

Three generations of elites—from Washington to Hollywood—have promised young Americans that severing the natural connections between sex, marriage, commitment, kids, and parenthood would be “liberating.” It has been anything but.

The fact is, there is a policy and a civic component to revitalizing our institutions, communities, and human connections. Delano and Kevin discuss the implications—and viable solutions—of a failing education system, the attack on the nuclear family, and a society where dads are replaced with government.

Each episode of The Kevin Roberts Show is a weekly rallying cry for lovers of freedom everywhere, packed with Dr. Roberts’ analysis on the issues of the day and deep conversations with the movers and shakers of American politics and culture. And all of it backed by the academic excellence of The Heritage Foundation. 

As a former college professor and current president of The Heritage Foundation, America’s most influential policy organization, Dr. Roberts has spent his career learning, educating, and taking decisive action for a brighter America. He believes that conservatives have every reason to be hopeful, because conservative ideas are ideas that work. It’s time to go on offense.
