In an era of increasingly vitriolic rhetoric and tribal political identities, is there room for politeness in politics? Join Leslie Winner and John Hood for lunch to discuss these issues and more.
John Hood is chairman of the board at the John Locke Foundation, a North Carolina think tank that issues reports, hosts events, produces broadcast programs, and publishes Carolina Journal. Hood helped found the John Locke Foundation in 1989 and served as its president from 1995 to 2014. Hood writes and comments frequently for national media outlets, particularly National Review and its blog “The Corner.” His articles have appeared in both magazines — such as Readers’ Digest, The New Republic, Military History, and Reason — and in newspapers, including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and The Chicago Tribune.
