The Coming Apart of America's Civic Culture
Murray, Charles
Journal of Character Education, v10 n1 p1-11 2014
The day-to-day appraisal of the state of the nation is understandably dominated by the stories in the headlines. In "Coming Apart" (Murray, 2012), the author attempted to step back from today's headlines and take a longer view of where the nation is heading. Murray's conclusion was that we face a much more ominous long-term problem than anything involving the national debt, immigration, or marginal tax rates. America's historic civic culture is intimately bound up with the American character, and the place to start is with American character as the founders saw it in the 18th century and European observers saw it in the early part of the nineteenth century.
