KMO talks with James Poulos, the Executive Editor of The American Mind, the Claremont Institute's online publication devoted to driving the conversation about the ideas and principles that drive American political life. His new book, HUMAN, FOREVER: The Digital Politics of Spiritual War, James proposes a means of thwarting the assault on the human soul posed by digital technology.
