In the early 2000s, neoconservatism was the dominant strain of political thought on the right. Bush the younger was president in the U.S. and The West was under attack by Osama Bin Laden. And it was in this time that a young Daniel Goldwater found himself identifying as a neoconservative. Over time, Daniel has drifted away from his neocon past—or has he? In a special episode of The Goldwaters, Samantha Goldwater-Adler interviews her younger brother to see where his political views lie now, and how much that’s changed in the last 15 or so years. What Samantha wants to find out is what insight Daniel has into how the mind of a young conservative can be changed.
