Unfit for Democracy

Stephen E. Gottlieb

NYU Press

E pluribus unum, unity amid diversity, matters. Social science describes how deeply polarization affects us, why it matters, the effect on our “social capital,” and the implications for America. We look at the changes in mass media law and the law of politics that contribute to our polarization. We look at changes in the laws affecting our communities, jobs, schools, and the military draft that once pulled us together.

Keywords:   e pluribus unum, law of politics, mass media law, polarization, schools, social capital, social science, draft, unity amid diversity
