Is the United States an international role model?

On 1 April 2017, some of the brightest thinkers from across the Republican and Democrat political divide came together to discuss some of the world’s biggest problems at the New York Public Library.

We talked freely and honestly about the flaws in the institutions that guard the Constitution, how we feel about strangers, where we stand on global security, whether diversity is a glue or dividing line, and free speech and the public interest.
