Charlie sits down with professor of political philosophy at Hillsdale College, Dr. Khalil Habib, to explore the great thinkers who both inspired the Founding Fathers, but who also served as cautionary tales, warning them of the many pitfalls in forming a society and a government to run it. Diving into social contract theory, Charlie and Dr. Habib discuss Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Jean-Jacques Rousseau (and just a little tease of Niccolò Machiavelli). Can these men trace their ideological DNA to ANTIFA, BLM, and other groups? Are they portrayed by history accurately, or was there much more nuance to their histories and philosophies than what is often taught? This amazing discussion serves as a crash course in Political Philosophy. Find out whey these men were either loved and embraced by America's Founding Fathers (and the men who inspired them), or why they were reviled.
