Arthur Brooks, President of AEI, joins the Federalist Radio Hour to discuss increasing ideological polarization and why Americans have stopped speaking to friends and family over politics. His new book, “Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt” addresses how we can find our way out of this era of tribalism.
“I think the biggest problem we have is a society that is more and more fearful,” Brooks said. “People in their twenties are far less likely to be in love…less likely to get married…to have relationships…less likely to move, to start businesses, and we have to stop this paralysis. We have to have a culture that’s more entrepreneurial, that strikes out to do stuff.”
