In Defense of Liberty
Victor Davis Hanson is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributor to National Review magazine. He is the author of many books, including A War Like No Other and Mexifornia.
Victor Davis Hanson talked about the challenge facing the Western nation state in the present postmodern age of asymmetrical warfare, globalization, and worldwide terrorism: to ensure that its own citizens can express themselves freely without fear of violence and retribution, from enemies who are quite different from those our security forces have dealt with in the past. He argued that the U.S. is in danger of losing the ideals of the Enlightenment due to a lack of willingness to fight for them. “In Defense of Liberty: The Relationship Between Security and Freedom” was a lecture hosted by the Heritage Foundation. He responded to questions from members of the audience.
