Dr. Emma Long discusses how history, COVID-19, freedom, & American History applies to our current political morass. Her objectivity comes from viewing our pathology from afar.
Listen to Dr. Long explain the behavior of Americans based on their religious beliefs. She points out that the nature of the American constitution and its capture by factions makes it more prominent ideologically much more so than in countries like United Kingdom. She made a statement that Americans should heed, remove the Constitution from the pedestal.
