Abstract

Americans aspire to a society that is not merely civil but also good. A good society is on in which people treat one another as ends in themselves and not merely as instruments, a society in which each person is shown full respect and dignity rather than being used and manipulated. It is a social world in which people treat one another as members of a community - a much extended family - rather than only as employees, traders, consumers, or even fellow citizens.
