For decades one of the most farseeing, outspoken public intellectuals in the United States has been Robert B. Reich. Now he provides us with The Common Good, his sixteenth book, a passionate, clear-eyed manifesto urging the recentering of our national economics and politics on the profound idea of the common good. Responding to the prevailing uproar of divisiveness, cynicism and blind self-interest, Reich makes a powerful case for expanding America's moral imagination. Rooting his argument in common sense and everyday reality, he demonstrates that a common good not only exists, but in fact is the very essence of any functional society or notion. Societies, he asserts, undergo varying virtuous cycles that reinforce the common good as well as vicious cycles that undermine It - one of which this country has been experiencing for the past five decades. This can and must be reversed.



First we must weigh the moral obligations of citizenship and carefully consider how as a country we should relate to honor, shame, patriotism, truth and the meaning of leadership.

This is a heartfelt statement from a major political thinker devoted to saving America's soul.

Feb 6, 7:30pm to 8:30pm, First Congregational Church of Berkeley, 2345 Channing Way, Berkeley, CA
