Ill Literacy, Episode 56: Eurotrash (Guest: David Harsanyi)

January 20, 2022

In Episode 55 of Ill Literacy, Tim Benson talks with David Harsanyi, author of “Eurotrash: Why America Must Reject the Failed Ideas of a Dying Continent.”

Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by David Harsanyi, senior writer at National Review, to discuss Eurotrash: Why America Must Reject the Failed Ideas of a Dying Continent. They discuss how America is more tolerant of minorities and welcoming of immigrants, and how both are better off economically in the United States than the EU. They also chat about how the Nordic states are not socialist utopias, the quick death of free speech in Europe, and how the abandonment of Judeo-Christian ethics has left the continent in a moral vacuum.
