Prof. Victor Davis Hanson, 70, is obviously not a wokester, and that’s an excellent thing. He’s a sensible, articulate, well-educated guy who cares about responsible civic consciousness and American history and our Democratic institutions, etc. I ignored this YouTube ad the first few times that it played while I was doing something else, and then I began to actually listen to it.

Wiki bio: “Hanson is an American classicist, military historian, farmer, and political commentator. He has been a commentator on modern and ancient warfare and contemporary politics for The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, National Review, The Washington Times, etc. He’s a professor emeritus of Classics at California State University, Fresno, the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow in classics and military history at the Hoover Institution, and visiting professor at Hillsdale College. Hanson was awarded the National Humanities Medal in 2007 by President George W. Bush, and was a presidential appointee in 2007–2008 on the American Battle Monuments Commission.”
