Ep. 1902 The Modern State Is a Radical Departure

The following video is brought to you courtesy of the TomWoodsTV YouTube Channel. Click the video below to watch it now.

Marco Bassani of the University of Milan joins me to discuss the idea of the modern state — centralized, one and indivisible, exercising a monopoly on violence over its territory, with no subdivisions having rights of their own that trump those of the central state. We also discuss an incident at his university that will sound sadly familiar to American listeners.
