Victor Davis Hanson is an American classicist, military historian, columnist, and farmer. He has been a commentator on modern and ancient warfare and contemporary politics for National Review, The Washington Times and other media outlets. He is a professor emeritus of classics at California State University, Fresno, and is currently the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow in classics and military history at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution.
In this segment of a lecture he gave last year, Dr. Hanson discusses the hypocrisy of the Left when it comes to equality. He especially gives interesting insights into intellectuals, like Al Gore, who seek fame and fortune while they study or advocate for Leftist causes.
