Why are lawlessness and antisocial behavior so pervasive in this country? How can we end the gridlock in American politics?

Book Description Praeger. Hardcover. Condition: New. 283 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.4in. x 1.2in.John Locke was an English philosopher who is regarded as the father of liberalism. His thinking had a profound influence on political philosophy; in fact, the founding fathers who drafted the Constitution of the United States based a portion of its content upon Lockes tenets. However, it can be argued that these Lockean concepts are ill-adapted to realities of the modern world, and as such are the root cause of dysfunction in our body politic todayand are hampering the Obama administrations attempts to effect change. This book traces the evolution of liberalism as a political philosophy in England and the United States from the 18th century to today. The author presents a series of historical and contemporary studies that illustrate how John Lockes political philosophy of antisocial individualism continues to affect modern American culture. Additionally, this book attempts to address why American conservatives are actually liberal, how American liberals can also be deemed liberal, to provide direction in getting American politics moving again, and restore the American dream for ourselves and our children. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9780313393518
