Michael Coffman talked about his book Rescuing a Broken America: Why America Is Deeply Divided and How to Heal It Constitutionally (Environmental Perspectives, 2010). In his book he argues that over the course of the past one hundred years Americans' world view, once based on liberty and the individual, has been replaced by increased government control. Mr. Coffman cites the disparate writings of John Locke and Jean Jacque Rousseau to illustrate what he believes are the changes in America’s political understandings and presents his thoughts on how the Constitution can still protect the individual. Michael Coffman spoke about conservative values, political philosophy, and the roots of partisanship. He also responded to questions from members of the audience at the Seventeenth Annual Eagle Forum Collegians Leadership Summit. The annual conference was held at The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. close
