In trying to understand why, Stern has embarked on a provocative exploration of the role moral authority plays in American contemporary culture: why we believe victims are morally “special”- how we allow claims of moral authority to pass unchallenged- and the way in which our need for unshakable certainty so often closes our mind to possibility. With humor and purpose, Stern offers a more rational, yet also heartfelt way of thinking that provides more reason to hope.
