    Unabridged Interview: Jeffrey Rosen

    Unabridged Interview: Jeffrey Rosen

    This is our unabridged interview with Jeffrey Rosen.“In many ways, we're living in the founders’ nightmare,” says Jeffrey Rosen, president of the National Constitution Center. “All of the founders thought that we could not govern ourselves as a democracy unless we first achieved self-government as individuals.”For Independence Day, Rosen shares how the "pursuit of happiness" mentioned in the Declaration of Independence is defined differently than our contemporary notion of the word. It includes a life in pursuit of self-mastery as what would ensure our individual and collective flourishing. Jeffrey also discusses the goods of stoic philosophy and touts the practice of deep reading as a potential antidote to civic issues the U.S. is facing currently.Show Notes:Resources mentioned this episodeThe Pursuit of Happiness by Jeffrey RosenWe The People PodcastPDF of Lee’s Interview NotesTranscript for Abridged EpisodeJOIN NSE+ Today!

My weekly practice

This podcast has become a weekly ritual for me. The encouragement to creativity and curiosity inspire me to practice daily.

Just noise

Please stop adding a plinky music bed behind the dialog. What purpose does it serve other than being a distraction? It's not entertaining. It's not necessary. It's not even good music. Stop over producing. Have unfollowed show. Sorry.

Curious approach!

I love Lee’s approach, leading with curiosity. I also love hearing his laugh in response to his guests.
