    Episode 430: The Slaveholders' Dilemma

    Episode 430: The Slaveholders' Dilemma

    Eugene Genovese was arguably the most important historian on the institution of slavery in the last half century. But his contributions to Southern history also covered the "Mind of the Master Class." Genovese took the South seriously as an intellectual force, and his 1992 "The Slaveholders' Dilemma" explores the complexities of Southern society and most importantly urges historians (and Americans) to find value in what the Southern tradition offers modern America. I discuss this book in Episode 430 of The Brion McClanahan Show.

    Episode 429: Conservative as "Defender of Liberty"

    Episode 429: Conservative as "Defender of Liberty"

    Richard Weaver is one of the great political thinkers of the 20th century, and his 1960 essay "Conservatism and Libertarianism: The Common Ground" should be required reading for anyone interested in the modern political right. Weaver was called a conservative but in this essay he identified as a libertarian. He also had no problem being called a conservative. The glue? John C. Calhoun and the idea that both conservatives and libertarians defended "liberty." I discuss this essay in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.

    Episode 428: What if the Antis Won?

    Episode 428: What if the Antis Won?

    A listener asked, "What if the Anti-Federalists won?" What would America look like? Another listener is confused about the meaning of the American "nation." You have questions, I have answers. I smash two birds with one stone in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.

    Episode 427: Court Packing is Infrastructure

    Episode 427: Court Packing is Infrastructure

    The left wants to redefine every element of American political, social,  and economic life. That's why a stupid congressman called "court  packing" infrastructure. Nancy Pelosi said that a bill presented by some  of these dimwits in Congress is DOA, but she will probably wait for  Biden's recently created commission on the federal courts to make a  recommendation to expand the court and then push it on the American  public. Either way, this is naked partisanship in the pursuit of power. I  talk about "court packing" and the American political system in this  episode of The Brion McClanahan Show

    Episode 426: Alabama Gun Rights

    Episode 426: Alabama Gun Rights

    A bill introduced in the Alabama Senate gets it right. The Alabama Second Amendment Preservation Act hits all the right points and covers all the right bases. It's almost as if the bill's sponsor, Gerald Allen, has been listening to The Brion McClanahan Show and following the Tenth Amendment Center. I cover the bill in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.

    Episode 425: Mandatory "Founding Documents"?

    Episode 425: Mandatory "Founding Documents"?

    South Carolina is considering a law to make teaching America's "founding documents" a mandated requirement at state colleges and universities. In addition to the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, America's "founding documents" include the Federalist Papers and the Emancipation Proclamation. That's right. A (legally dubious) document presented in 1863 is now a "founding document," as are the Federalist Papers, and while I agree that Americans should read them, they are not a "founding document" either. What's going on here? Conservatives think that if every American read the Constitution, government would be smaller and people would vote better. This might be true to an extent, but I think this bill is shortsighted for one very important reason: progressives dominate college and university political science and history departments. Do we want them teaching the "founding documents"? I discuss in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.

The Classical Conspiracy ,

Relearn Real American History

I came to embrace the Jeffersonian tradition as a result of Brion’s podcast and history courses. With the Tom Woods and the Abbeville Institute podcasts as additional allies, I feel I have the knowledge to finally call myself a true American Conservative Constitutionalist.
