The Soul of Democracy

(p.193) Conclusion
After the Protests are Heard

Sharon D. Welch

NYU Press

We are not seeking an expansion of economic prosperity and political rights only for ourselves as individuals, or even only for our particular social and cultural group. A society that truly values all is genuinely better for all: it overcomes the isolation and arrogance of class and race based social systems; it embodies the joy and creativity of plentitude, reciprocity, and generative interdependence.

Keywords:   generative interdependence, Windigos, resilient democracy, Just Living, authoritarianism, reparations, existentialism, moral narcissism, Ta-Nehisi Coates, plenitude, reciprocity
