He believes various private interest groups funneling money into our political system has caused a national divide that has distracted us from a sense of common good. This decline in values has also caused a loss of nationalistic pride making us an easy target for hijackers who could steer our country down a destructive path.
Brokaw does believe, however, that we can regain our national confidence and learn to interact in an ever-crowded world. Brokaw engages in a conversation about our country, offering many ideas for how we can revitalize the promise of the American Dream.
