Village Underground Debate! Is America in Decline?

Last week, I had the pleasure of debating in New York City. The event took place at the Village Underground bar - sister club to the legendary Comedy Cellar. I was on the side arguing that the US is in decline, and my partner was George Packer from The New Yorker. On the other side, David Rothkopf of Foreign Policy was with conservative author, Kristin Tate. We had a lot of fun! My time linked comments follow below! I'm very grateful to CC owner, Noam Dworman and CC Director Special Events Stephen Calabria for inviting me.

Debate Demise

I'm excited to announce that I'll be debating at NYC's The Village Underground (sister to The Comedy Cellar) on May 17th. We'll discuss whether the U.S. is in decline. I will be arguing that we are, but I'll suggest structural changes that would put us back on course! 

If you're interested, details on the event can be found here.

Dr. McLaughlin is 89. His show remains one of the most popular in the nation. I'm lucky.
