(Beltway Confidential)- Somewhere along the way, the Republican presidential candidates must have really scared Katrina vanden Heuvel, the editor of The Nation magazine, because she believes that the GOP is anti-civilization.
“How has this Republican Party become untethered from any possible solutions to the problems this country has?” vanden Huevel asked during an appearance today on Morning Joe. The GOP “wants to repeal all the civilizing advances, from the New Deal to the Enlightenment.”
The Enlightenment was a multi-century cultural and philosophical movement that coincided with the Scientific Revolution. Some of the most renowned Enlightenment thinkers proved very influential to the American founding and the U.S. Constitution.
