Trump and the Decline of America - Yaron Brook
Mon 5 December 2016, 18:30 – 22:30 GMT
The election of Donald Trump has both shocked - and divided - the libertarian community. His election reflects a tangled web of factors - his personality, the state of mainstream politics, people's feelings about race and culture. Even hard data paints a confusing and contradictory picture.
This event will be addressed by Yaron Brook, himself horrified by Trump's victory, who will explain his reaction from a uniquely philosophical perspective and describe how best to analyse events of this kind. What matters most? Image or Policy? Does Trump's success reflect the decline of America or symbolise it?
