This is a historical and cultural look at the American juxtaposition of individual liberty and the common good. Not entirely liberal versus conservative, this looks at the cultural geographic regions of North America and how that influences perspective and how that can slowly change over time. It is a good way to ask what democracy really means to you, the individual, and what you want to get out of it.
