A recent Coeur d’Alene Press article titled “Press needs better judgment on radical opinions” was a most interesting read. Consequently, we contacted the author, Cornell Clayton, PhD, to speak with us about it. His talk explores the Populism and Paranoia in our politics. For example, he discusses Richard Hofstadter’s historical argument on the history of the paranoid style in our politics.
We’ll learn that the divisive nature of our current politics is not so unusual. So, join Dr. Clayton for a presentation a historical review of the crazies who have occupied the halls of Congress throughout our history. Cornell will be our guest this Friday, April 23 at noon online.
The link to join the meeting is distributed on Thursday. You can also request the link by contacting Phil at firstname.lastname@example.org.
