America was founded on a commitment to a notion: that citizens could be self-governing, living and working together under the rule of law. Unfortunately, but this notion is being eroded by an ailment — identity politics. Identity politics and other afflictions that deprive us of personal responsibility and a shared community are keeping Americans out of pursuing this noble ideal. How do we recover our fantasies and rid ourselves of this ailment?
Within the course of this live event hosted by Law & Liberty and the RealClear Foundation at Dallas, Georgetown political theorist and Senior Fellow at the Claremont Center to the American Way of Life Joshua Mitchell spoke on those issues and their remedy from his book, American Awakening: Identity Politics and Other Afflictions at Our Staff.
