Expanding the Conversation

  • "If we win our independence, is that a guarantee of freedom for our descendants? Or will the blood we shed begin an endless cycle of vengeance and death with no defendants?” Jordan Ballor and Eric Hutchinson quote Hamilton and talk about the political necessity of forgiveness—in marriages and in nations.
  • Zaid Jilani argues that seeing African Americans, or Muslims, or Jews, as part of victimized minority collectives is a toxic formulation that ensures that they are never treated fairly as individuals—and denies them the ability to exercise real power.
  • Prudence is the virtue that enables our reason to understand our true good in a specific circumstance and to figure out the right way to achieve it: it's where our consciences meet the real world. Robert Christian argues that today's massive and complex crises cannot be addressed without the exercise of this neglected virtue.
