Our country is polarized – perhaps even more so, following the presidential election. How do we move past polarization and come together, despite our deeply held and differing points of view? In this powerful discussion, you will hear from Arthur Brooks, a Harvard professor, social scientist, and former director of the American Enterprise Institute, a public policy think tank.Brooks is the author of 2019 bestseller Love Your Enemies. In the book, he says that America has developed a culture of contempt that is warping political discourse and tearing us apart as people. But the divide is bridgeable.
Brooks will share his roadmap for building a better country and finding happiness. He will also engage in dialogue with NCRC President Steve Dinkin, exploring this provocative idea: that to bring our country together, we shouldn’t try to agree more, but to disagree differently.
Author and motivational speaker Simon Sinek says, “If we won’t listen to each other, maybe we can start by listening to Arthur Brooks.” Listen and learn with us as we take A Path Forward to heal the political divide.
