America’s Cold Civil War
Is America in a cold civil war? The Claremont Institute and Heritage Foundation team up to discuss the deep divide our country now finds itself in.
Is America in a cold civil war? Many prominent thinkers think so. And not without reason. As the culture wars of the past several decades have intensified, the country now finds itself deeply divided. Americans disagree not just about politics, but also about foundational questions regarding the meaning of equality and very the purpose of our nation. As Americans grow apart in our understanding of these fundamental ideas, we seem to be becoming two distinct nations living in the same country. What remains unclear is where these growing differences will lead, if they can be resolved, and what principle will unify us in the future. Please join us as our panelists share their analysis of America’s fundamental divides.
