E.J. Dionne: Me-first Citizens vs. America
Amid yet another fractious election season, E.J. Dionne analyzes how hyper-individualism is poisoning the nation's political atmosphere. Washington Post columnist Dionne, author of Our Divided Political Heart, argues that we Americans can't agree on who we are because we can't agree on who we've been-or what it is, philosophically and spiritually, that makes us Americans. Taking on Tea Party distortions of American history, Dionne shows that true American tradition points not to radical individualism, but to a balance between our love of individualism and our devotion to community.
