America's Social Contract: Where It Started and Where Are We Now?  

We are taught in school that we are an ideological nation. Where other nations form around a common bond of race or geography, Americans hold a common ideology. For this reason anyone can come to America and become an American. If this is true, it follows that there is a bare minimum of ideology required to be an American. What is that bare minimum? What is that ideology? These questions become increasingly important as Americans become increasingly divided. This class will delve into the core philosophy that the nation was built around; talk about how America has shifted away from that basis; and ask what, if anything, can unite us again?
