David Davenport: Rugged Individualism

interview with David Davenportvia Commonwealth Club
Thursday, May 18, 2017

Hoover Institution fellow David Davenport and his co-author, Gordon Lloyd, analyze the history of American individualism, from its earliest roots in the christianity of the colonial period to the present day. In spite of the closing of the western frontier; the shift from an agrarian to an industrial economy; the rise of progressivism, the New Deal, the Great Society and the Reagan revolution; federal education reform; and growing income inequality, rugged individualism has continued to survive as an American cultural icon. Davenport argues, though, that our ever more stifling federal government and overwhelming national debt may leave no room for rugged individualism to survive.
