Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
ORDERING AMERICA: Fulfilling the Ideals of Western Civilization Wealth & Justice is a well-informed, broad-based, and highly-effective defense of capitalism, addressing objectively both its many virtues and some vices. Of note, the authors identify the understanding of human nature by Adam Smith, the Scottish Enlightenment, and our Founders as the key underpinning of our successful commercial republic. Significantly, the modern science of evolutionary psychology has recently validated their idea of human nature. That is a watershed because, in addition to Marxist communism as explained in Wealth & Justice, American social science and progressivism have based their opposition to capitalism over the past century on the Rousseauian concept of human nature, or social constructionism. Evolutionary psychology has revealed social constructionism to be false as well as destructive.

In our European-inspired universities of the late-nineteenth century, the doctrine of social constructionism--there is no human nature except that formed by society and culture, through groups--grew into an article of faith in American sociology and some schools of psychology. The superorganic or group mind, instead of the individual mind, became a basic tenet of social science. A new political science--progressivism, based on social constructionism--was formulated to overcome the limits of the founding order. Rather than continuing the Founders' emphasis on individual responsibility and private sector opportunity, progressivism emphasizes equality--achievement of equal individual results through communal sharing to transform human nature.

good defense of free market economy. Few people understand the value of freedom and personal responsibility. Highly recommended. Generally a good use of Scripture

This is a wonderful summary to remind us what really drove the success behind the system which has lifted so many out of poverty and allowed people to do such world changing innovations.
