In everyday terms and incident, intelligent reasoning about America and Americans, by a popular counselor and lay educator. Commentary on where freedom begins -- and ends -- how to retain freedom without jeopardizing others -- how to replace the outer discipline of force with the inner discipline of spirit. A discussion of the aristocrat as opposed to the democrat -- and the residual contributions of the aristocratic code; the individual, his awareness of other people, his courage in maintaining his own convictions, his obligation in group living; the question of public property versus private interests, and so on. A discussion which demands the best of its listener -- in accessible form. The sort of book which is of constructive value for parents and teachers, and which has reached some through the pages of National Parent-Teacher.
