E. J. Dionne, Jr. - America Divided (Episode #1606)

KQED World: Sat, Dec 22, 2012 -- 2:00 PM

In his new book, Our Divided Political Heart, E. J. Dionne, Jr. offers an incisive analysis of how hyper-individualism is poisoning the nation's political atmosphere. He argues that Americans can't agree on who we are because we can't agree on who we've been or what it is philosophically and spiritually that makes us Americans. Dionne takes on the Tea Party's distortions of American history and shows that the true American tradition points not to radical individualism but to a balance between our love of individualism and our devotion to community. Dionne is a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a columnist for the Washington Post.
