Jason D. Hill is a professor of philosophy at DePaul University, and Honors Distinguished Faculty and has authored five books: What Do White Americans Owe Black People: Racial Justice in the Age of Post Oppression, We Have Overcome: An Immigrant’s Letter to the American People, Becoming a Cosmopolitan: What It Means to Be a Human Being in the New Millennium, Civil Disobedience and the Politics of Identity: When We Should Not Get Along, and Beyond Blood Identities: Posthumanity in the Twenty First Century. Professor Hill has a Ph.D. in philosophy and has been a professional writer and book author for over thirty years. He is a specialist in ethics, moral psychology, political theory, and American politics and also holds a degree in English literature and British poetry.
He has lectured and taught extensively on the subject in the United States, Europe and Asia. From 2010-2012, a consortium of four universities in England held a series of conferences devoted to Dr. Hill’s post-human cosmopolitanism and adopted the moral vision contained therein as part of their mission statements. His scholarly articles have been published in anthologies and journals in Germany, the Czech Republic and The Netherlands. In addition, he has written for various magazines and newspapers in which he has brought the tenets of cosmopolitanism to a wide audience. He is also a well-respected national public speaker. He has been interviewed regularly in various media outlets, including NBC’s Today show, The Daily Caller Show, Fox News, Fox and Friends, Spiked Magazine, Fox Business, Billy O’Reilly’s ‘NO Spin News,’ NPR, NRATV, scores of podcasts and several other mainstream/syndicated media. He is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center where he writes a bi-monthly column for Front Page Magazine. Professor Hill also writes frequently for THE HILL, The Federalist, Commentary Magazine, The American Mind, American Greatness, and Quillette Magazine. He is working on two new books: 'Jamaica Boy' in Search of Ayn Rand, and, Leading in the Midst of Chaos: Creating America's New Manifest Destiny.
He is deeply committed to Moral Foundationalism, Moral Universalism, the absolutism of reason, intransigent individualism, and unfettered capitalism.
Professor Hill came to the United States at the age of twenty from Jamaica, and he has thrived beyond his wildest dreams. He remains incredibly grateful to this country for its bountiful opportunities.
There is a common belief among left-wing "progressives" that failure to enforce the inheritance tax will result in increased income disparities among racial, ethnic and social groups. The tax is a way of allocating the already-taxed income of wealth creators among the general population in a manner, it is imagined, that will ease society toward the moral position any fair and just society ought to occupy: one that has achieved total equity among groups, and one that establishes metaphysical egalitarianism as an appropriate characteristic of the human condition.
In the subsequent months I read scores of articles of children in K-12 public schools being taught about America created out of stolen lands. I heard Vice President Kamala Harris deliver remarks on the day after Columbus Day, or what has come to be known as ‘Indigenous Day….’ Harris accused the United States of ushering in a ‘wave of devastation for tribal nations, perpetuating violence, stealing land, and spreading disease.'
To list the myriad examples of what constitutes “cancel culture,” one would risk becoming a statistician of gutter trivia. It would involve elevating a great deal of journalistic minutiae to the level of moral contemplation in a manner that eventually would become exhausting.
