Rebecca Friedrichs & Rookie discuss the teachers’ union and their left-wing political agenda (7.2.18, 3 min.)
Arthur C. Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., talks about his new book, The Battle, in which he argues that the United States faces a new culture war, albeit not over red-hot and white-hot issues like abortion or guns, but rather, against “creeping changes which threaten our culture of free enterprise.”
Embodying “the values that define us as a nation,” free enterprise is all about “individual liberty, equal opportunity, entrepreneurship, and self reliance.” But recent economic troubles, he writes, have “distorted our values” and given a small minority who oppose economic freedom a “pretext for sweeping European-style democratic change.”
The Battle is all about battling back and prevailing.
