Codevilla is professor emeritus of international relations at Boston University. A year ago he published a remarkable essay in The American Spectator titled America's Ruling Class and the Perils of Revolution. It's the best essay (and later a book) on politics that I've ever read.
Codevilla has a remarkably clear understanding of elites in American culture, and he provides insight into science elites as well.
Here's the interview. Enjoy.
