Law and Laughter, Promise and Presidents

We're proud to present a brand new edition of The Mark Steyn Show. These programs, along with SteynPosts, Tales for Our Time and much else at SteynOnline, are made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are extremely grateful.

In this episode, Mark talks to F H Buckley, George Mason law professor and Trump family speechwriter, born in Saskatchewan but long resident in the United States. Professor Buckley discusses the themes of some of his books - The Way Back: Restoring the Promise of America, The Morality of Laughter, and The Once and Future King: The Rise of Crown Government in America. Buckley has some provocative thoughts on the path ahead for President Trump, and on the merits of the US and Canadian constitutions. Click below to watch:

Among the benefits of Mark Steyn Club membership is that you can enjoy The Mark Steyn Show in any medium you desire: video, audio or text. So, if you find Steyn and Buckley more palatable in non-visual form, please log-in to our Audio and Transcript versions. To listen to the above show, simply click here.

As we said above, The Mark Steyn Show is made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. We appreciate that membership is not for everyone, but it does help assure that shows like this remain out there for everyone, winging their way around the world and perhaps changing a few minds. Membership in the Club is available now, and if you'd like to find out more about it, please see here. Alternatively, if you're totally antipathetic to Steyn but you have a loved one who feels differently, there's always our new gift membership.

Another advantage of membership is access to our comments section. So, if you take issue with anything Douglas or Mark said on the show, then feel free to comment away below. (Any hate preachers among the membership are welcome to weigh in, too.)
