A History of Political Upheaval

The Enemies List

Rick Wilson's The Enemies List

Published:May 15, 2024
Fareed Zakaria joins Rick to discuss the history of political upheaval and revolution and his new book, "The Age of Revolutions: Progress and Backlash from 1600 to the Present." They explore the historical patterns of cultural and political upheavals, beginning with the Tea Party movement and the cultural backlash during Barack Obama's presidency. Zakaria contrasts the incremental nature of the American Revolution with the more radical French and Russian revolutions. They delve into the challenges faced by modern authoritarian regimes in China and Saudi Arabia, the importance of America's post-war influence, and the need to navigate technological and economic transformations while preserving liberty and human dignity.
