Volcanoes are erupting in The Philippines, but on-fire Australia received some welcome rain. The Iran war cries have been called off and The Donald’s military powers are about to be hamstrung by the Senate. Meanwhile, his impeachment trial is starting, and we’re all on Twitter for a front-row seat.
We’re living in an age of disappointment, insecurity, and instability, a sentiment the pandemic has made all the more clear. Meanwhile, the soon-to-come administration changeover does not change a fundamental reality about our nation: we are a country divided, characterized by collapsing levels of trust in our institutions, in our politics, and in each other.
How did we get into this mess, and how do we get out? Join The Progress Network (TPN) for a conversation with TPN Members David Brooks and Theodore R. Johnson, hosted by our founder, Zachary Karabell, centered around this question. They examine ideas for how to bridge our divides at both an individual and collective level.
