Interview with Prof. Angelo Codevilla

Who is Angelo Codevilla, you ask?

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. 


  1. I have read the essay. If I was asked to resume it in one statement, I would quote this:

    By identifying science and reason with themselves, our rulers delegitimize opposition.

    But as one great President once said: You cannot fool all the people all the time!

  2. by the way .... is BACH actually fighting all of you on his own ??? that guy got spirit dude n_n! XD seriously.

    You know ... this is how I like the net. Calm, civil. 2 comments and no rantings... exacept my joke of course XD.

  3. Edward, Nice to see your back. And Oleg is still on.

  4. lol hey Anon XD.

    I just needed some time off. You know... the net is not like the greatest place to have a talk to begin with. Guess I am one of those who gets thing personal really quick.

    Is that you Bach XD ??? or is it KW ?
