Pirate Television: Morris Berman - Why America Failed

Most criticism of the problems within American society places blame on institutions (military, corporations) rather than looking at the American public's identity. The true root of the problem rests on the nature of the American culture, which has been based in war and religious objectives since colonists first arrived to the New World. The US reflects a "negative identity" in that we create oppositions to guide and justify our actions. To begin to rectify economic, political, and social problems in the US we need to address mass public education and redefine the American identity.
