Civic philosopher and best-selling author Philip Howard will join the John Locke Foundation and the Federalist Society to discuss the need to reboot Washington and the importance of addressing this need in the context of the 2020 election cycle. In his new book, Try Common Sense, Howard attacks the failed ideologies of both parties and proposes a radical simplification of government to re-empower Americans in their daily choices. He explains the first step is to abandon the obsession with bureaucratic correctness and instead create simpler frameworks focused on public goals where officials―prepare for the shock―are actually accountable for getting the job done. Howard is also the author of the best-seller The Death of Common Sense, and The Rule of Nobody, which was a finalist for the Hayek Book Prize.
