An Evening with Chris Rufo


Date: 11 April 2023

Conversation between Chris Rufo of the Manhattan Institute, who has become the leading and most effective anti-woke activist in the United States, and the Danube Institute’s own Rod Dreher, Director of Network Project. Dreher is the author of the groundbreaking book, Live Not by Lies, which draws on the experiences of anti-communist Central Europeans to advise Americans how to resist the "soft totalitarianism" of wokeness. Rufo and Dreher, two of the most important anti-woke activists today, discussed how this ideological radicalism conquered American elites and why Hungarians should prepare their defenses now.
