Some are suggesting that all America needs to build trust and a common purpose again is to work for a "civil society", rejuvenating local institutions rather than government. Beem, who directs the Democracy and Community Program at the Johnson Foundation, argues instead that a moral society also needs politics. He explores the notion ora civil society, the modern maladies of cynicism and distrust, and the thoughts of Tocqueville and Hegel. The book concludes by using the American Civil Rights Movement to illustrate how civil society works best when it is integrated with politics.
