Caustic public discourse and bitter partisanship are tearing America apart. But the underlying problem isn’t anger or incivility; it’s a culture of contempt—our habit of treating those who disagree with us not as merely incorrect in their views, but as worthless.
Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute, and Simon Sinek, New York Times-bestselling author and optimist, are nationally respected voices on cultural change and leadership. The pair discuss the key themes of Brooks’ new book, Love Your Enemies, and outline a series of practical strategies for leaders in all areas of life who wish to subvert the culture of contempt and usher in a new era of American progress.
