In this episode of George Washington Slept Here, host Jason L. S. Raia welcomes Victoria Coates, a former member of the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Security Council, who now serves as the V.P. of the Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy at the Heritage Foundation. The conversation explores Coates' professional journey, her works on art and art history, and America today.

Topics include:
  • The political landscape in academia.
  • American democracy as it relates to the Roman Republic.
  • The relationships between history, freedom, and art.
  • A discussion on Victoria’s book, David’s Sling, which “places into context ten canonical works of art executed to commemorate the successes of free societies that exerted political and economic influence far beyond what might have been expected of them.”
Tune in for thought-provoking conversations on American history, civics, and liberty now!

Quotes

"We are losing sight of everybody's common humanity and that's where the study of history, I think, is instructive."- Victoria Coates

"Leverage historic security relationships with countries like Saudi Arabia. They can buy all the market-valued oil they want, but remember, we control the Fifth Fleet in the Gulf."- Victoria Coates

"We must cherish and appreciate liberty, not take it for granted, as it is not our natural state; it is a precious gift."- Victoria Coates
