Summary
Only once in the last 250,000 years did humans lift themselves out of their natural environment of poverty. It happened in eighteenth-century England, and it was an accident. The emergence of freedom and prosperity was nothing short of a miracle. The radical ideas that made the miracle possible were written not just into the Constitution, but in our hearts, laying the groundwork for our uniquely prosperous society. But now the principles of liberty and the rule of law are under attack-- from left and right. Goldberg shows how we must renew our sense of gratitude, and rediscover the ideals and habits of the heart that led us out of the bloody muck of the past-- or back to the muck we will go
Summary
Argues that the United States needs to get back to the political virtues it was founded on and that American democracy is being destroyed by authoritarianism, tribalism, identity politics, nationalism, and cults of personality
