March’s Monthly Social ft Lawrence M. Mead
March 5, 2020 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Join us on Thursday, March 5, 2020 for our Monthly Social featuring: Lawrence M. Mead. Lawrence joins us to present Burdens of Freedom which details a new and radical interpretation of America and the challenges facing our nation on a global scale.
The United States is an individualist society where most people seek to realize personal goals and values. The great divide is between the Individualist West, for which life is a project, and the rest of the world, in which most people must seek to survive rather than achieve. Burdens of Freedom re-evaluates the entire Western tradition, which took individualism for granted and argues, that how to respond to cultural difference is the greatest test of our times.
Lawrence M. Mead is Professor of Politics and Public Policy at New York University. His many previous books defined the theory behind the radical welfare reform of the 1990s, which for the first time required many welfare recipients to work as condition of aid. Since the 1980s, he has been an influential advisor to social policy makers in Washington, at the state and local level, and in several foreign countries.
