Gary Hart: The Republic of Conscience

Enjoy discounted tickets to hear former US Senator, US Special Envoy for Northern Ireland, author, and Yale Divinity (’61) and Yale Law (’64) alum Gary Hart speak at the Commonwealth Club.

Former Senator Gary Hart will discuss the growing gap between the founding principles of the United States Constitution and our current political landscape. Going back as early as 400 BC, the idea of a true republic has been threatened by narrow, special interests taking precedence over the commonwealth. The United States Constitution was drafted to protect against such corruption, but Hart says America is nowhere near the republic it set out to be. He tackles major American institutions – the military, the CIA, Congress – and outlines how these establishments may have led the country away from its founding principles, not closer to them.
