– Eric Liu
“We’re all better off when we’re all better off.”
In his book, The Gardens of Democracy: A New American Story of
Citizenship, the Economy, and the Role of Government, Eric Liu asks
us to think of government not as a machine that needs regular
service and repair, but as a garden to be nurtured. Successful gardens
follow natural rules but require goals, regular tending, and an
understanding of connected ecosystems. While he wants us to have
a bigger share of the harvest (we’re all better off when we’re all
better off), Liu also asks us to be more involved as citizen gardeners.
Liu, a former White House deputy domestic policy
advisor and a regular contributor to TIME.com and
TheAtlantic.com, also says:
• “Society becomes how we behave. Positive behavior begets positive behavior.”
• “Government should be about the big what and the little how.”
• “Freedom is responsibility. Freedom costs a little freedom.”
Join us as Eric Liu makes his case. Sponsored by the First Unitarian Church of Omaha
