Description

New York Times best-selling author, columnist and political commentator David Brooks discusses his new book, The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life. David explains there are two metaphorical mountains we must climb to live a moral life. He describes the “first mountain” life, which is self-centered, vs. the “second mountain” life, which is others-centered. David provides insight into how our culture operates from a “first mountain” perspective, by shaping us to be individualistic, but says it is the community approach to life where joy can be found. David also shares how his own suffering led him to discover a deeper spiritual and connected life.

This was good, until they started talking about the President ripping the fabric. I didn't vote for him, but we are more unified as people now, than we have been in years.
