Mitt Romney on Arthur and “The Road to Freedom”

In today’s speech at the Clinton Global Initiative, Mitt Romney stated “By the way, perhaps the best example of the good that free enterprise can do is by looking at the example of the developed world itself. My friend Arthur Brooks at the American Enterprise Institute, he’s pointed out that before the year 1800, living standards in the West were appalling… But starting in 1800, the West began two

Quotes by Arthur C. Brooks  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“We don’t have an anger problem in American politics. We have a contempt problem. . . . If you listen to how people talk to each other in political life today, you notice it is with pure contempt. When somebody around you treats you with contempt, you never quite forget it. So if we want to solve the problem of polarization today, we have to solve the contempt problem.”
Arthur C Brooks, Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt

“Anyone who can’t tell the difference between an ordinary Bernie Sanders supporter and a Stalinist revolutionary, or between Donald Trump’s average voter and a Nazi, is either willfully ignorant or needs to get out of the house more. Today, our public discourse is shockingly hyperbolic in ascribing historically murderous ideologies to the tens of millions of ordinary Americans with whom we strongly disagree. Just because you disagree with something doesn’t mean it’s hate speech or the person saying it is a deviant.”
Arthur C Brooks, Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt

“The more control you have over your life, the more responsible you feel for your own success - or failure.”
Arthur C. Brooks
