Resistance: The Quintessential American Value. Mike Cosentino welcomes author Jeff Biggers back to the show to discuss his new book: Resistance, Reclaiming an American Tradition. Biggers notes that the greatest American value is dissent, adding that the people who abuse their power today are no different than King George. “The greatest American act, the most patriotic thing we can ever do, is to fight against over-reach. It’s what has pushed us forward for more than 200 years,” he says.
Biggers not only talks about resistance in reaction to the corruption of the Trump administration. He goes on to discuss the youthful resistance to inaction on the climate crisis led by Greta Thunberg and the inevitable consequences of the failure of governments to act.
