Senior Fellow and Director, Center for American Common Culture

Like the United States, Great Britain is divided on the critical issues of immigration, identity, culture, and class. British journalist David Goodhart addresses the great “values divide” in his new book, The Road to Somewhere: The Populist Revolt and the Future of Politics. Goodhart asserts that British society is divided between a cosmopolitan liberal group, the Anywheres, and a much larger, but less influential group he calls the Somewheres. The Anywheres place a high value on autonomy and mobility, while the Somewheres value family and nation. Goodhart asserts that this “values divide” helps to explain Brexit and makes the case for engagement with the “decent populists” in the Somewhere community.

On June 30th, Hudson Institute Distinguished Fellow Walter Russell Mead and Senior Fellow John Fonte conducted a discussion with David Goodhart on his new book and the future of Brexit and British values.
