President of the American Enterprise Institute, Arthur Brooks, will discuss his new book, “Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt.”
Brooks will comment on the divisive nature of politics that is tearing America a part. One in six Americans have stopped talking to close friends or family members over politics; angry activists agitate on college campuses; television commentators scream over one another; and internet trolls degrade national debate through inflammatory rhetoric and character assassinations.
Brooks shows how treating others with contempt is not a formula for success. Based on cutting edge behavioral research, ancient wisdom, and a decade of experience leading one of America’s top policy think tanks, Brooks offers a new way to lead not by attacking others, but on bridging national divides and mending personal relationships. “Love Your Enemies” is not a push for moderation, holding that disagreements are the secret to excellence. It offers a clear strategy for a new generation of leaders, and is a rallying cry for people hoping for a new era of American progress.
