Indifferent, cynical, uninformed, marginalized, alienated, and sometimes furious, frustrated, fed-up, and even violent-these are the many characteristics of the modern citizen. The militias are in the mountains, the ravers are on X, the ethnic groups are grouping, the market serves the rich, and the politicians are inventing a new ethics. While the rest of us are lost in a trillion dollar pleasure binge.

What happened to the West? Nothing. Liberal democracy did what it promised.

The phrase liberal-democracy is now so commonplace that we simply assume that these terms are inherently compatible. This course takes aim at the myth that Liberalism and democracy are essential to each other. The thesis of this course is that Liberalism itself, as a philosophy of private individualism, perpetual acquisition, and expansive freedom, is largely responsible for many of the problems that 'show-up' in the Western economic, social and political arena.
