America was founded on a dedication to a concept: that taxpayers could be self-governing, living and working together under the rule of law. Regrettably, but this idea has been eroded by an ailment — identity politics. Identity politics and other afflictions that deprive us of personal responsibility and a shared community are keeping Americans from pursuing this noble ideal. How do we regain our thoughts and rid ourselves of this ailment?
Over the course of this live event sponsored by Law & Liberty and the RealClear Foundation at Dallas, Georgetown political theorist and Senior Fellow at the Claremont Center such as the American Way of Life Joshua Mitchell spoke on these problems and their cure from his publication, American Awakening: Identity Politics and Other Afflictions at Our Culture.
