As the American economy seems to be in free fall and as Americans consider how much rein should be given to the capitalist ethic, what the role of the government should be, and what individual responsibility is all about, it is appropriate to ask, What is the meaning of “American democracy?” What are the core values that underlie the American society and polity? Have values such as freedom, individual initiative and self-reliance, freedom of inquiry and civil discourse changed? should they change?
