Podcast #17 — Connections: Afghanistan to Swanky Doors to Culture Wars to American Pride

In episode 17 of The Far Middle, Nick discusses America’s exit from Afghanistan, American credibility, and lack of leadership from President Biden and his administration. “You took a situation, regarding exiting Afghanistan, from a ready-aim-fire, as you normally would execute a plan, into one of ready-fire-aim,” says Nick, and he lays out the costs of that jumbled execution. Nick goes on to “connect the dots” to his underlying concerns with the unique auction of the Chelsea Hotel’s doors, the cultural wars in the U.S. being won by the elites, and closes with academia’s influence on America’s young adults and the age group’s level of American pride.
