The Better Arguments Project

The Better Arguments Project was created to explore the core arguments that define American identity. We believe America itself is an argument – between liberty and equality, Federalist and anti-Federalist worldviews, strong national government versus state or local control; individual rights and collective responsibility; colorblindness and color-consciousness, Pluribus and Unum. American civic life today doesn’t need fewer arguments; it needs better arguments. We aim to make that possible.
