The Three Languages of Politics

Featuring Arnold Kling and Peter Russo

Political communication can be described as the use of three separate “languages”: progressive, conservative and libertarian. Each serves to reinforce the validity of the positions of its constituent members while at the same time maligning the views of their opponents.

By identifying and understanding the language that each group employs, we can discuss politics while minimizing miscommunication, break down barriers to real connection, and create space for a less fractious exchange of ideas.

Join us for a timely introduction to Kling’s new and updated version of this modern classic.
