In this 18 page illustrated lecture text, Steve McIntosh provides a simplified and accessible description of ICE’s approach to political evolution. After the 2016 election, it has become clear that hyper-partisan political polarization is a symptom of a larger cultural divide that currently afflicts American society. Overcoming this divide requires a new “politics of culture” that can provide the necessary perspective needed to grow out of this fractious impasse—a condition which is paralyzing America’s government. This downloadable pdf integrates the lecture’s insightful slide images, which helps make it a quick and lively read. The lecture was originally given on July 15, 2017 at the summer symposium of Keystone College, in La Plume, Pennsylvania.
