July 6, 2022 – August 3, 2022 (5 sessions)
Wednesday, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM ET
Four political ideologies are currently competing to win the allegiance of its citizens: Libertarian Conservatism (maximum individual liberty); Ethno-Nationalism (the nation as an enduring community); Political Liberalism (free & equal citizenship’s cooperation under deep diversity), and Democratic Socialism (commitment to fundamental rights to health, education and employment, elimination of poverty, and reduction of economic and social inequality). We will analyze policy choices and a triadic model of Political Freedom for each Ideology.
Session 1: Libertarian Conservatism: Radical defense of maximal individual liberty and minimal state interference. The individual as creative, innovative entrepreneur.
Session 2: Ethno-Nationalism: The Nation as an enduring community of its values of tradition, culture, history, religion and ethnicity.
Session 3: Political Liberalism: Free, equal and rational citizens cooperate under ample moral and political diversity, and an ordered system of law.
Session 4: Democratic Socialism: All citizens are guaranteed rights to health, education and employment, elimination of poverty, and reduction of inequality.
Session 5: Comparison & Synthesis: Can democracy support and accommodate vigorous conflict between these diverse political ideologies?
