Kevin Glass (Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity) and Sonny Bunch (The Washington Free Beacon)

On Rational Actors, Kevin and Sonny discuss the phenomenon of “the politicized life,” in which cultural preferences come to reflect political leanings.

And where is this culture of heightened political correctness headed?
