The Common Good: Rebuilding Trust and Rebooting the System with Philip Howard
Philip Howard, a lawyer and author, founded Common Good to call for fundamental reform of America's bureaucratic, legal, and political institutions. And he sees the nation's most recent controversies--government responses to Covid-19, and episodes of police misconduct--as exemplifying the breakdown of governance and social trust. In a July op-ed for USA Today, he wrote that "America needs a new public operating system that re-empowers people with responsibility to deal sensibly with" matters of governance.
How would we "reboot" America's "operating system"? And, more fundamentally, what is "the common good"--and how can Americans work together to advance it? To discuss these themes, he joins Adam White for today's episode.
