S10:E09 Dr.Cramer-Resentment (2/28/17)

February 28, 2017 – Faith & Culture: The Politics of Resentment

with Dr. Kathryn Cramer

Season 10, Episode 9

Is the “liberal elite” really ruining this country? On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith and the politics of resentment. Is the political standoff in America really between city-dwellers and rural folk? If so, what are the real issues dividing people? What is “rural consciousness,” and how do place-based identities influence how people understand politics? We’re bringing in an expert for this conversation: she’s an American political scientist, a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the author of a book on this subject resulting from nearly a decade of research. Of course, we’ll also be looking at what faith has to say in regard to this. Our conversation with Dr. Kathy Cramer (pictured here) about the great political divide in America– she’s the author of The Politics of Resentment – you’ll want to hear this installment of Friends Talking Faith.
