Entrepreneur and author Vivek Ramaswamy stopped by the Joe Pags Show this week to discuss why so many Americans are obsessed with playing the victim.

“Immigrants come to this country to pursue excellence. It used to be our national identity. I think it can be again,” explained the author.

“This isn’t the first time our culture has gone through similar problems. The American Experiment is not dead and over. But this victim culture is a cancer on our soul,” he added.

“We have people sitting here taking for granted that they were born here. They’re not taking advantage of it!” said Pagliarulo.

“People have convinced themselves they’re victims,” concluded Ramaswamy.
