Power and Hypocrisy with Glenn Greenwald (S2 Ep.22)
9 July 2021
My guest today is Glenn Greenwald. Glenn probably needs no introduction as he’s among the most famous journalists in the world. He is also a constitutional lawyer and author of four New York Times bestselling books on politics and law. In this interview, we talked about the philosophical through-line in his career as a journalist. We talked about free speech, the surprising similarities between George Bush’s war on Islamic terror and Joe Biden’s war on white supremacist terror. We also spoke about false accusations of racism, Glen’s experience raising mixed-race kids in Brazil, the danger posed by elites who don’t realize they live in a bubble, President Biden’s race-based policy for pandemic aid, and Glenn gives his advice to young journalists.
