Join us for a breakfast, conversation, and book signing with one of America’s most respected free-market thinkers. Charles Murray is a political scientist, author, and libertarian. He first came to national attention in 1984 with the publication of Losing Ground: American Social Policy 1950–1980, which has been credited as the intellectual foundation for the Welfare Reform Act of 1996.
Liberty Breakfast attendees will receive a copy Murray’s latest work, Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010, just weeks after its release. In the book, Murray argues that American classes have reached a level of separation unlike anything we have ever known. While America has never been a classless society, all classes historically participated in roughly equal levels in a few core behaviors. That has changed, he demonstrates, examining specifically American trends regarding marriage, religion, honesty, and industriousness for the fifty years from 1960 to 2010. Murray argues that America has devolved into a class system where those at the top and those at the bottom barely inhabit the same culture, and this is a threat to our uniquely American civic fabric.
