Throughout America's history, its people formed churches, social and fraternal organizations, and neighborhood groups at an astonishing pace. When we talk about “American exceptionalism” this is what we're really talking about: the self-organizing community that solves its own problems. In second half of the 20th century, however, scholars and pundits have pointed to a decline in American neighborliness and propensity for joining civic organizations. Church attendance is down, social organizations are dissolving, and two-parent families are declining. What can the data on American attitudes toward community tell us about why this is happening? Today, I am pleased to welcome Ryan Streeter and Dan Cox to discuss the state of American communities. Streeter is a Senior Fellow and Director of Domestic Policy Studies at AEI. He studies topics of civil society, community, localism and religion. Dan Cox is the Senior Fellow in Polling and Public Opinion at AEI and the Director of the Survey Center of American Life. He specializes understanding American attitudes toward politics, youth culture, identity, and religion. We discuss highlights from AEI's fall American Community survey, which can be found on the AEI website. We'll also discuss their vocational journeys and professional lives and the role of civic engagement in building a happy and fulfilling life.  Mentioned During the Episode https://www.aei.org/profile/ryan-streeter/ (Ryan Streeter) https://www.aei.org/profile/daniel-a-cox/ (Dan Cox) https://www.americansurveycenter.org/research/public-places-and-commercial-spaces-how-neighborhood-amenities-foster-trust-and-connection-in-american-communities/ (American Community Survey) https://www.hks.harvard.edu/faculty/stephen-goldsmith (Stephen Goldsmith) https://www.britannica.com/biography/Adam-Smith (Adam Smith) https://www.britannica.com/biography/David-Hume (David Hume) https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/social-sciences/social-network-analysis (Social network analysis) https://www.pewresearch.org/ (Pew Research Center) https://www.prri.org/ (Public Religion Research Institute) https://www.aei.org/profile/karlyn-bowman/ (Karlyn Bowman) https://www.aei.org/research-products/book/the-moral-sense/ (The Moral Sense- James Q.

Here is where America stands this morning on abortion rights, following that monumental Supreme Court ruling. Women in at least 8 states can no longer get a legal abortion. Many more states are expected to outlaw or severely restrict the procedure in the months ahead. That would establish an abortion-free zone stretching for thousands of miles in the middle of the country. Meanwhile, the latest CBS News poll shows a majority of americans -- 59% -- disapprove of the high Court's decision. The high court's ruling on Roe upends nearly 50 years of legal precedent. That raises a lot of legal questions. President Biden is under pressure from his own party to respond strongly to the Supreme Court's action. This morning, he is overseas for the latest G7 summit in Germany. In other news, the U.S. Is ready to send more military aid to Ukraine.

Join America's Roundtable co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy for a conversation with professor Victor Davis Hanson (https://www.hoover.org/profiles/victor-davis-hanson), best-selling author of The Dying Citizen: How Progressive Elites, Tribalism, and Globalization Are Destroying the Idea of America (https://www.amazon.com/Dying-Citizen-Progressive-Globalization-Destroying/dp/154164753X). Professor Hanson is the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution; his focus is classics and military history. Hanson received a BA in classics at the University of California, Santa Cruz (1975), was a fellow at the American School of Classical Studies, Athens (1977–78), and received his PhD in classics from Stanford University (1980). The timely conversation brings to the forefront America's vanishing middle class and how government policies are impoverishing millions of citizens. Professor Victor Davis Hanson will provide his perspective on the influx of over 3 million illegal immigrants entering through the US southern border and its impact across the country. Key topics will also cover the significant erosion of the rule of law, and the weakening state of our national security. The Washington Post (https://www.washingtonpost.com/immigration/2022/06/16/united-states-border-immigration-arrests/) reports on the data compiled on illegal immigrants — "The agency is on pace to exceed 2 million detentions during fiscal 2022, which ends in September, after tallying a record 1.73 million in 2021." In an essay titled "A Quiet Destruction," Professor Hanson wrote (https://americancompass.org/essays/a-quiet-destruction/), "There is a common mentality evident in these pathologies and among those policymakers responsible for them. It is a strange new sense of justified entitlement among our credentialed elites in government and in private enterprise. As self-righteous moralists, they now assume that their deserved affluence, influence, and cultural superiority should exempt them from suffering firsthand the consequences of their own abstract theories and misbegotten policies that fall so heavily and so destructively upon distant and forgotten others." Professor Hanson provides a clarion warning by relaying evidences of the looming peasant state (https://www.deseret.com/2021/11/8/22766032/the-looming-peasant-state-stanford-hoover-institution-housing-crisis-middle-class): "The result is the emergence of a new American peasantry, of millions of Americans who own little or no property. The new majority has scant, if any, savings. Fifty-eight percent of Americans have less than $1,000 in the bank. A missed paycheck renders them destitute, completely unable to service sizable debt. Most of what they buy, from cars to electronic appurtenances, they charge on credit cards." The Dying Citizen: How Progressive Elites, Tribalism, and Globalization Are Destroying the Idea of America (https://www.amazon.com/Dying-Citizen-Progressive-Globalization-Destroying/dp/154164753X) The New York Times bestselling author explains the decline and fall of the once cherished idea of American citizenship. Human history is full of the stories of peasants, subjects, and tribes. Yet the concept of the “citizen” is historically rare—and was among America's most valued ideals for over two centuries. But without shock treatment, warns historian Victor Davis Hanson, American citizenship as we have known it may soon vanish. In The Dying Citizen, Hanson outlines the historical forces that led to this crisis. The evisceration of the middle class over the last fifty years has made many Americans dependent on the federal government. Open borders have undermined the idea of allegiance to a particular place. Identity politics have eradicated our collective civic sense of self. And a top-heavy administrative state has endangered personal liberty, along with formal efforts to weaken the Constitution. As in the revolutionary years of 1848, 1917, and 1968, 2020 ripped away our complacency about the future. But in the aftermath, we as Americans can rebuild and recover what we have lost. The choice is ours. Articles and Essays by Professor Victor Davis Hanson: The Sovietization of American Life (https://www.independent.org/news/article.asp?id=14198) Behind all our disasters there looms an ideology, a creed that ignores cause and effect in the real world—without a shred of concern for the damage done to those outside the nomenklatura. A Quiet Destruction (https://americancompass.org/essays/a-quiet-destruction/) The problem is not that government is doing too much or too little, but rather that it is utterly failing in those key tasks that must rightfully be its focus. The Mercury News | Hanson: The American people are being forced to imagine the unimaginable (https://www.mercurynews.com/2022/05/13/hanson-the-american-people-imagine-the-unimaginable/) Americans are now entering uncharted, revolutionary territory. They may witness things over the next five months that once would have seemed unimaginable. Until the Ukrainian conflict, we had never witnessed a major land war inside Europe directly involving a nuclear power. In desperation, Russia's impaired and unhinged leader Vladimir Putin now talks trash about the likelihood of nuclear war.

It's a must-read that every person, religious and non-religious, should buy and peruse every night before bed. It'll make you think harder, pray more ardently, and understand your civilization better." — Ben Shapiro, host of "The Ben Shapiro Show" "Dennis Prager's commentary on Exodus will rank among the greatest modern Torah commentaries. That is how important I think it is. And I am clearly not alone... It might well be on its way to becoming the most widely read Torah commentary of our time—and by non-Jews as well as by Jews." — Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, bestselling author of Jewish Literacy Why do so many people think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is outdated? Why do our friends and neighbors – and sometimes we ourselves – dismiss the Bible as irrelevant, irrational, immoral, or all of these things? This explanation of the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible, will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today's issues, but completely consistent with rational thought. Do you think the Bible permitted the trans-Atlantic slave trade? You won't after reading this book. Do you struggle to love your parents? If you do, you need this book. Do you doubt the existence of God because belief in God is “irrational?” This book will give you reason after reason to rethink your doubts. The title of this commentary is, “The Rational Bible” because its approach is entirely reason-based. The reader is never asked to accept anything on faith alone. As Prager says, “If something I write does not make rational sense, I have not done my job.” The Rational Bible is the fruit of Dennis Prager's forty years of teaching the Bible to people of every faith, and no faith. On virtually every page, you will discover how the text relates to the contemporary world and to your life. His goal: to change your mind – and then change your life.   Highly Recommended by ACU. Purchase his book at- https://www.amazon.com/Rational-Bible-Exodus-Dennis-Prager/dp/1621577724   The Rational Bible: Genesis by Dennis Prager  USA Today bestseller Publishers Weekly bestseller Wall Street Journal bestseller Many people today think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is not only outdated but irrelevant, irrational, and even immoral. This explanation of the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, demonstrates clearly and powerfully that the opposite is true. The Bible remains profoundly relevant—both to the great issues of our day and to each individual life. It is the greatest moral guide and source of wisdom ever written. Do you doubt the existence of God because you think believing in God is irrational? This book will give you many reasons to rethink your doubts. Do you think faith and science are in conflict? You won't after reading this commentary on Genesis. Do you come from a dysfunctional family? It may comfort you to know that every family discussed in Genesis was highly dysfunctional! The title of this commentary is “The Rational Bible” because its approach is entirely reason-based. The reader is never asked to accept anything on faith alone. In Dennis Prager's words, “If something I write is not rational, I have not done my job.” The Rational Bible is the fruit of Dennis Prager's forty years of teaching the Bible—whose Hebrew grammar and vocabulary he has mastered—to people of every faith and no faith at all.

Our Laundry, Our Town: My Chinese American Life from Flushing to the Downtown Stage and Beyond (Fordham UP, 2022) is a memoir that decodes and processes the fractured urban oracle bones of Alvin Eng's upbringing in Flushing, Queens in the 1970s. Back then, his family was one of the few immigrant Chinese families in a far-flung neighborhood in New York City. His parents had an arranged marriage and ran a Chinese Hand Laundry. From behind the counter of his parent's laundry and within the confines of a household that was rooted in a different century and culture, he sought to reconcile this insular home life with the turbulent yet inspiring street life that was all around them--from the faux martial arts of tv's Kung Fu to the burgeoning underworld of the punk rock scene. In the 1970s, NYC, like most of the world, was in the throes of regenerating itself in the wake of major social and cultural changes resulting from the Counterculture and Civil Rights movements. And by the 1980s, Flushing had become NYC's second Chinatown. But Eng remained one of the neighborhood's few Chinese citizens who could not speak fluent Chinese. Finding his way in the downtown theater and performance world of Manhattan, he discovered the under-chronicled Chinese influence on Thornton Wilder's foundational Americana drama, Our Town. This discovery became the unlikely catalyst for a psyche-healing pilgrimage to Hong Kong and Guangzhou, China--his ancestral home in southern China--that led to writing and performing his successful autobiographical monologue, The Last Emperor of Flushing. Learning to tell his own story on stages around the world was what proudly made him whole. As cities, classrooms, cultures, and communities the world over continue to re-examine the parameters of diversity, equity, and inclusion, Our Laundry, Our Town will reverberate with a broad readership.

However, I think it wasn't ever the case before. Likewise, anxiety and shame. It's so useful to be able to name what's coming up and to really distinguish. My marriage has helped with that, too. Thoughts on Breathing Most importantly, the kind of meditation I do tends to really focus on the breath. I usually, when I'm meditating, have a very busy mind. For instance, I count my breaths, you know, one in-breath, out-breath, one in-breath, out-breath two, and do that in sets of fours, when I'm especially caught in my mind and my thoughts. Suggested Resources Book: Poetry of Presence: An Anthology of Mindfulness Poems by Phyllis Cole-Dai Book: The Path to Kindness: Poems of Connection and Joy by James Crews and Danusha Laméris App: Headspace Bullying Story Firstly, I was never really the recipient of a lot of bullying. I think that was the result of real efforts that were not very healthy to kind of hide myself and be as invisible as possible, and to be quiet. I was already shy and introverted, but I think I made myself even quieter, and really tried to blend in, and not call attention to who I really was, or what I really loved doing. Therefore, I don't have a lot of stories about that as a kid. I will say one memory that came when you talked about bullying; it's not quite the same thing, but when I was in grad school in Nebraska, I was walking down the street, and just feeling really happy. I was really embodying who I was at that point, teaching poetry, writing poetry, not being afraid to dress a certain way. As I was walking down the street to the pharmacy, and these guys in a pickup truck that was passing by called out these terrible names, just like these anti-gay epithets and I sort of stopped for a minute, but then, didn't want to engage or anything like that. But when I got home, I realized how much that affected me. That is to say, I was more in tune with that, probably because I had been meditating and was really practicing mindfulness. But it really disturbed me. And not just that I had to experience it, but that other people, especially younger people, were probably experiencing that all over the country and the world at the very same moment.

Perhaps you've noticed that the thing we call “social media'' is deeply antisocial—the thing that promised to unite us has done precisely the opposite.  A lot of people have tried to explain why. They blame Mark Zuckerberg. Or Jack Dorsey. Or the attention-stealing algorithms of TikTok. Or capitalism. Or human nature. But the best explanation I have read to date was just published in the Atlantic by my guest today Jonathan Haidt.
