Jeff Biggers Interview – Podcast July 2, 2018

Resistance, Reclaiming an American Tradition. That’s the title of a new book written by this week’s guest. Jeff Biggers is an author, journalist, historian and playwright. During a conversation with Democratic Perspective co-hosts, Steve Williamson and Mike Cosentino, he explains that resistance is the greatest form of patriotism. To make the point, Biggers uses the words of Thomas Paine, one of our nation’s most important and least known founders, who said, “Resistance is not just a protest. It’s an act of renewal.” Biggers reasons that resistance is necessary for undoing mistakes, saying “Hopelessness adapts. Hope resists.”
