Victor Davis Hanson: The Dying Ideal of American Citizenship

Victor Davis Hanson’s book of 2021, The Dying Citizen: How Progressive Elites, Tribalism, and Globalization Are Destroying the Idea of America, seeks to explain the decline and fall of the once cherished concept of American citizenship. Hanson, a classicist and military historian, argues that the concept of “the citizen” has been one of America’s most-valued ideals for over two centuries, but is now under threat, and may soon vanish. His incisive political critique outlines several of the historical forces which he believes have led to this crisis, including the evisceration of the middle class, weak border policies, and identity politics.
