America was founded on a commitment to an idea: that citizens can be self-governing, working and living together under the rule of law. Unfortunately, however, this concept has been eroded by an illness — identity politics. Identity politics and other afflictions that deprive us of personal responsibility and a shared neighborhood are keeping Americans from pursuing this noble ideal. How can we recover our fantasies and rid ourselves of this ailment?
Over the course of this live event hosted by Law & Liberty along with the RealClear Foundation at Dallas, Georgetown political theorist and Senior Fellow at the Claremont Center to the American Way of Life Joshua Mitchell talked on these problems and their cure by his publication, American Awakening: Identity Politics and Other Afflictions at Our Culture.
