Lenin. Mao. Castro. Mugabe. Khomeini. Donald Critchlow joins the podcast to discuss his new book "Revolutionary Monsters: Five Men Who Turned Liberation Into Tyranny." The Sons of History talk about how these five dictators came to power across five different regions, but in very similar ways. Dustin Bass and Alan Wakim discuss with Critchlow how the West (whether journalists, politicians, or academics) continued to be enamored we these ruthless tyrants, how academia was a hotbed for revolution each time, what was the ultimate result, and how America and the West is falling into a trap to put themselves in the same situation.
The Sons of History highly recommend this book.
