Summary
"The veteran of three Republican administrations and one of the earliest conservative critics of Donald Trump's presidential run, Peter Wehner passionately and eloquently argues that the great American political tradition is dying--with catastrophic consequences. Drawing on history and his political career, Wehner surveys the hard lessons we've learned but are now imperiled--why we have checks and balances; why moderation, compromise, and civility are essential democratic virtues; and why we need to oppose those who use words as weapons to annihilate truth. Wehner seeks to restore and revitalize the idea that governing is a serious craft, that faith should elevate rather than coarsen our politics, and that politics is worthy of our respect rather than our cynicism because it is our only means for solving problems and finding justice. Wehner believes reversing this downward slide requires our participation: that we abandon our contempt for politics and of each other, that we take on the mantle of citizenship, and that we once again honor the unique and noble American tradition of doing 'politics.' Only then will we be able to prevent the death of politics in the US."--Dust jacket
