When well-designed institutions function properly, people thrive. Few institutions have been more ingeniously designed than the U.S. federal government via the Constitution in 1787. This auspicious beginning more than two centuries ago helps explain why the U.S. remains a magnet for opportunity seekers, students, entrepreneurs, dissidents, and persecuted believers.
Yet for decades now, America’s federal government has been underperforming. Social Security and Medicare face looming insolvency. The federal government’s “war on poverty” has failed to end poverty and arguably, has made it worse. In 2012, the United States Postal Service lost more money than the nation spent on the State Department, and Amtrak has lost money every year since being created in 1971. How can an enduring institution, so thoughtfully crafted, now produce such poor results?
John Nantz, Author of Rediscovering Republicanism: Renewing America with Our Founding Vision and Value sits down with Adam to explore if stripping things down to rediscovering and re-applying the OG American Republicanism and tapping into that 1787 Founding Fathers energy represents the best path forward for the United States. Don’t miss this one!
