Events | For the Promotion of Learning and Virtue: Moral Education in the University

The horrific attacks on Israel have served as a striking illustration of the moral rot present on American college campuses. Countless professors, DEI staff, and students have celebrated the slaughter and proclaimed their support for terrorist actions. Disturbingly, this is the result of decades of American colleges and universities neglecting their responsibility to shape their students into virtuous citizens, choosing instead to curry favor with radicals.


Join panelists Kyle Washut, Albert Cheng, and Jay Greene for a discussion with Dr. Kevin Roberts on how universities have contributed to the current crisis and how Americans can bring our institutions of higher education back in line with their original mission of forming virtuous and educated citizens.

  • Events | What Ails the Working Class in America?

    01:37:58
    America has been a notably hard-working society for most of its history—but has become much less so in recent decades. Labor-force participation, especially among men of prime working age, has fallen to levels not seen since the Great Depression and is particularly low in certain regions of the Middle West and South. The decline of work has coincided with declining health status and longevity and high levels of drug addiction.Policy analysts and political leaders have offered widely differing explanations for these discouraging trends, from trade policies and globalization to welfare policies, cultural upheavals, and regulatory suppression of economic opportunities. Their ideas for reversing course have important implications not only for national social and economic welfare, but also for partisan politics, as working-class Americans have been shifting significantly from their traditional home in the Democratic Party to the Republican Party.Join us to learn more about this critical topic as Heritage’s Christopher DeMuth moderates a conversation with Oren Cass (author of The Once and Future Worker: A Vision for the Renewal of Work in America), Nicholas Eberstadt (author of Men Without Work), Iain Murray (author of The Socialist Temptation), and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (author of Blue Collar Conservatives: Recommitting to an America That Works).
  • Events | An Agenda for Regaining America’s Maritime Security and Competitiveness

    56:50
    Our nation has fallen behind the threat from China. Beijing’s ongoing maritime aggression and numerous war games have cast doubt on whether our Navy can sustain peace or win in war. Making matters worse, the nation’s shipping, shipbuilding, and merchant marine, on which the nation relies to supply its forces abroad and economy at home, has atrophied to a dangerous state. This vulnerability invites economic blackmail and worse, the inability to sustain the nation’s military in war let alone keep a wartime industry functioning.Yet, our nation still has comparative advantages in which it must invest and leverage to stay ahead of China; large innovative capacity, like-minded partners around the world, and a compelling, prosperous, and energetic democratic society. To prevail in today’s New Cold War, our Navy’s decline must be reversed, and the strategically important maritime industry given the attention it deserves.
  • The Power Hour | Does America Risk Losing its Technological Edge Because of Bad Energy Policy?

    50:35
    The Power Hour is a weekly podcast that discusses the most interesting energy and environmental policy issues of the day with top national experts. Jack welcomes Heritage colleagues Annie Chestnut Tudor and Mario Loyola this week to discuss the tech industry and its projected energy requirements. Annie is a leading expert in technology policy and Mario, a recent Power Hour guest, knows more about energy policy than just about anyone. Together, this duo paints a stark picture of what we are facing when juxtaposing the rising energy demand of the tech industry against the energy supply problems we are sure to face with Biden’s green energy agenda. Join the conversation with an email to  thepowerhour@heritage.org! Tell us what you thought of the podcast and what you want to here in the future. Thank you for listening and being part of the Power Hour!
  • Events | The Legal Issues Behind the Colorado Ballot Disqualification Case

    01:11:31
    The Colorado Supreme Court ruled that former President Donald Trump should be struck from the ballot for violating Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which applies to certain officials who have engaged in insurrection or rebellion. Does this Section apply to the former President? Can state officials enforce it in the absence of an implementing statute from Congress? Does this Section still apply in 2024?On February 8, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Trump v. Anderson – what may be one of most important cases the Court has ever considered. Join us on the eve of oral arguments as Heritage’s John Malcolm moderates a discussion of the legal issues with Josh Blackman (co-author of a law review article on the subject), Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita (who is leading a coalition of 27 states supporting Trump), Patrick Strawbridge of Consovoy McCarthy (former Supreme Court clerk who filed an amicus brief for the RNC and NRCC), and Heritage Senior Fellow Hans von Spakovsky.
  • The Power Hour | Is America Heading for Blackouts?

    57:54
    The Power Hour is a weekly podcast that discusses the most interesting energy and environmental policy issues of the day with top national experts. We are joined today by Isaac Orr of the Center for the American Experiment. Isaac is an expert on the electricity grid and explains how poor policy choices are leading to instability in our electric supplies. In fact, Isaac has done the hard work of modeling out exactly what will happen to our electricity supply if we don’t change course. If you want to know what he found, you’ll have to listen to the Power Hour! But here is a hint: it's not good. Join the conversation with an email to thepowerhour@heritage.org! Tell us what you thought of the podcast and what you want to here in the future. Thank you for listening and being part of the Power Hour!
