American Political Thought

The readings so far have stresses several different “themes” that were each important to different groups in weaving together the underpinnings of American political culture. For example, the Puritans discussed a powerful sense of community but also experimented with aspects of equality and democracy, while Locke’s contract theory seems more designed to protect individual rights. Now that you have read and considered how these multiple themes are deeply imbedded in our history, which of them do you think ought to be more prominently supported today?
