Description

Pete Buttigieg demonstrates how a breakdown of trust is central to our nation’s current predicament—and how our future depends on finding ways to instill confidence in the American project, and in each other.

Trust is the essential foundation of America’s democracy, asserts Pete Buttigieg, former presidential candidate and bestselling author of Shortest Way Home. In a century shaped by terrorism, financial collapse, Trumpist populism, global pandemic, and systemic racism, trust—in our government, corporations, experts, and, most tragically, in one another—has precipitously eroded and, for so many, never existed in the first place. Recognizing that we are now experiencing disastrous consequences, the former South Bend mayor offers a direct reckoning with the corruption of social responsibility, interweaving history, political philosophy, and affecting passages of memoir, offering a new outlook for how we can confront the next decade’s challenges by building accountability. In this urgent work, Buttigieg confirms his status as a visionary political thinker.

    My 11 yo nephew has a better grasp of the American Constitution and history. He literally makes things up to fit his assumptions and narrative. To be honest I only got about a third of the way through it, but I doubt it got much better.

    Pete's underlying assumptions betray his hypocrisy of his own premise. He appears to have a fair understanding of the purposes and intentions originally invested in the Constitution and the founding of this nation. Throughout this book, however, he repeated uses assumptions that prove his lack of trust in others in order to interpret events and ascribe motive to those involved without actual knowledge.

    A poorly written PR rag defending the American deep state that Pete has spent his whole adult life trying to crawl his way into. This guy is gonna be around for awhile and it's just awful.

    This is a book for people who are willing and able to think. The only way that we have to make things better is to respect facts and reality, think and respectfully debate how we might make things better. Pete provides an excellent example of such an intelligent argument. Seek to make your argument as intelligently and you will be doing your part.

    Pete Buttigieg is a right wing CIA rat and a puppet of capitalist oligarchs. His father was a Marxist with good politics. Should have grounded the little sh*t head more

    Read this book if you don’t agree with him. Read this book if you do. We all stand to learn something from this humble, honest human being. Pay it forward.
