For any culture to be coherent it must have a shared identity. Our American identity is based on a constitutional order that defines the role of government and protects the rights of American citizens. The genius of America is that it limits the role of government in our lives. Because of this, we have incredible freedom as individuals. The American ideal also celebrates human potential. Look, America isn’t perfect. We’ve made plenty of mistakes. We have our warts and blemishes. But because of the framework and shared understanding of what America offers, we’ve been able to change for the better. And this change has come about by regular people not by canceling each other out but by leading with virtue, wisdom, and reliance on God who’s given us great freedom in the first place.
