Americans today don’t trust each other and their institutions as much as they once did. The collapse of social and political trust has arguably fueled our increasingly ferocious ideological conflicts and hardened partisanship. But is today’s decline in trust inevitable or avoidable? Are we caught in a downward spiral that must end in institutional decay or even civil war, or can we restore trust through our shared social institutions?
Associate Professor of Philosophy Kevin Vallier joins the show to discuss all that (and more), as he promotes his new book, "Trust in a Polarized Age" on today's episode of The Brian Nichols Show!
