Arthur Brooks on “Love Your Enemies”

Arthur Brooks Event

Arthur Brooks on “Love Your Enemies”

Lecture and Book Signing

Thursday, May 16 at 1:30PM

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.

U.S.-China Workshop: China’s Belt and Road Initiative and U.S. Grand Strategy

U.S.-China Workshop: China’s Belt and Road Initiative and U.S. Grand Strategy

May 23 at 7pm

In 2013, President Xi Jinping launched “The Belt and Road Initiative” a 21st Century vision of its ancient silk road trade routes. Its stated objective is to integrate China’s growing economy through the global economic system.

Through its various infrastructure projects, BRI runs through the continents of Asia, Europe, and Africa investing trillions in railroads, ports, pipelines, fiber-optic cables, satellites and internet connectivity.

As a consequence of China’s vision for global economic expansion, Chinese companies now have a controlling stake in 76 ports in 35 countries across the world. To protect its vast interests, China has also expanded its global security presence.

How does the BRI conform with China’s geopolitical ambitions? What does it mean for America’s interests and security?

An extraordinary journey behind the scenes of Arlington National Cemetery, Senator Tom Cotton’s Sacred Duty offers an intimate and inspiring portrait of “The Old Guard,” the revered U.S. Army unit whose mission is to honor our country’s fallen heroes on the most hallowed ground in America.

Cotton was a platoon leader with the storied 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment—The Old Guard—between combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. At the height of the Iraq Surge, he carried the flag-draped remains of his fallen comrades off of airplanes at Dover Air Force Base, and he laid them to rest in Arlington’s famed Section 60, “the saddest acre in America.” He also performed hundreds of funerals for veterans of the Greatest Generation, as well as the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

The Old Guard has embodied the ideals of honor and sacrifice across our nation’s history. America’s oldest active-duty regiment, dating back to 1784, The Old Guard conducts daily military-honor funerals on the 624 rolling acres of Arlington, where generations of American heroes rest. Its soldiers hold themselves to the standard of perfection in sweltering heat, frigid cold, and driving rain. Every funeral is a no-fail, zero-defect mission, whether honoring a legendary general or a humble private.

In researching and writing the book, Cotton returned to Arlington and shadowed the regiment’s soldiers, from daily funerals to the state funeral of President George H. W. Bush to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, reliving the honor—and the challenges—of duty at the nation’s “most sacred shrine.”=

Part history of The Old Guard, part memoir of Cotton’s time at Arlington, part intimate profile of today’s soldiers, Sacred Duty is an unforgettable testament to the timeless power of service and sacrifice to our nation.

Tom Cotton is a United States Senator from Arkansas. He served in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division and in Afghanistan with a Provincial Reconstruction Team. Between combat tours, he served with the United States Army’s 3rd Infantry Regiment (“The Old Guard”) at Arlington National Cemetery. His military decorations include the Bronze Star, the Combat Infantryman Badge, and the Ranger Tab. He served one term in the House of Representatives before being elected to the Senate.
