Never a Matter of Indifference: Sustaining Virtue in a Free Republic

Never a Matter of Indifference: Sustaining Virtue in a Free Republic

The contributors reveal how public policy in the United States has weakened the institutions of civil society that play a critical role in forming and sustaining the qualities of mind and character crucial to democratic self-government. The authors show what can be done, consistent with the principles of a free society, to establish a healthier relationship between public policy and character.
