Individualism in America [videorecording]: The Self-Made Society

University of Notre Dame ; producer, Michael J. Schmiedler ; written by Gary Sieber
Format
Video; VHS
Summary
Americans have always glorified the rugged, self-reliant individualist who saves the day or builds the fortune. But what are the long-term consequences of seeking personal gain and glory? Are we becoming a selfish nation, more concerned with personal fulfillment than the common good of the larger society? This program examines the shift toward cultural and social isolation, particularly as it relates to major national problems such as crime and punishment, the national debt, environmental issues and welfare reform.
