Overview

Democracy depends on an informed and mature population and will not survive in a society that doesn't understand itself in the context of the modern world. It is precisely this lack of self knowing that creates a culture easily manipulated by fear, lies and mass marketing. Muesing-Ellwood suggests we grow up, shift our life focus from "having" to "being," heal ourselves and in so doing nurture the democratic essence of the body politic.

Selfhood and U.S. Democracy is an outstanding accomplishment that finds freedom and liberty grounded in our own selves.

Margaret A. Buser

Author of A Trip Back to the Great Depression



In these economic times where everything is unsure: personal, professional, even our basic belief systems are being questioned and tested, Selfhood and U.S. Democracy presents a process by which we can begin to trust ourselves against a solid foundation of selfhood.
