Statesmanship is lost in today’s polarized political culture. This necessary art in a self-governing republic must take into account three main elements: Principles, Human Nature, and circumstances. We want to practice this lost art with our listeners by looking at one of the main political stories dominating the news cycle of the week and analyzing it through the eyes of a Statesman. What are the principles behind that particular issue? How does human nature play into any possible solutions? What are the circumstances on the ground that determine which solutions are feasible? After considering these three elements with our listeners, we will be better able to discern what the prudent solutions are for today’s most important political problems.
