Are We Better Off Divided? | David French & Angela Simms

The Veritas Forum

In the aftermath of a contentious election season, we may find ourselves questioning the future of a nation that seems irreparably divided. We may ask questions such as, “is political and/or social unity possible or even desirable?” and, “if unity is desirable, what is the best pathway to that unity?” • Attorney, author, and political commentator, David French, discusses this topic with assistant professor of Sociology and Urban Studies at Barnard College, Angela Simms. Presented by the Veritas Forum at Columbia University. • Please like, share, subscribe to, and review this podcast.
