Deep Dive: Can Americans Come Together by Arguing Better?

Setup

We don’t need fewer arguments in American civic life today, we need less stupid ones. That means we need arguments that are more emotionally intelligent and more deeply rooted in our history. It also means recognizing that America is an argument: between liberty and equality, strong national government and local control, color blindness and color-consciousness, pluribus and unum. Guided by the Aspen Institute’s Better Arguments project, you’ll explore the roots and contemporary manifestations of these fundamental tensions in American democracy, and try your own hand at arguing better.
