Ill Literacy, Episode 47: Wrath (Guest: Peter W. Wood)

October 26, 2021

In Episode 47 of Ill Literacy, Tim Benson talks with Peter Wood, author of "Wrath: America Enraged."

Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Peter W. Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars and previous Ill Literacy guest, to discuss his new book, Wrath: America Enraged. They discuss how Americans became some expressively angry, how that anger came to dominate politics, and the differences between “anger” and “wrath,” as well as how the “new anger” differs from older forms of it. They also discuss how citizens can use anger constructively, and nonviolently, to return to ordered liberty and founding principles.
