Business Leader Challenges Unreasonable Political Messages with Reason – Sets the Record Straight

An international business leader with a master’s degree in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, Seth David Radwell reveals the origins of two distinct versions of the country that are competing at present. In American Schism: How the Two Enlightenments Hold the Secret to Healing Our Nation, (July 2021, Greenleaf Book Group; ISBN: 978-1-62634-861-5; Hardcover), Seth David Radwell, with a Foreword by Jonathan Israel, a leading Enlightenment scholar and Professor Emeritus, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, reveal a historical investigation of the nation’s divergent roots.  

Radwell’s new book has quickly become an Amazon best-seller, and he is available to discuss:

  • How we got here, why we need not only to break out of our partisan bubbles, but our time bubble.
  • How both major political parties in the U.S. have shown disdain for the American working classes who have been left behind by our neoliberalist policies — our pursuit of unfettered global capitalism — of the past 50 years.
  • Why these policies have benefited some groups of Americans enormously, especially educated “elites” in technology centers that have reaped the benefits of global capital expansion. 
  • And how as much as it has benefited some Americans, it has left many Americans behind and has been entirely deaf to the concerns of these groups.
