America is still the greatest nation, but its reputation around the world, and its storied democracy are now badly tarnished. The speaker gives a candid rendition of the nation's strengths and weaknesses, and argues community, state, and national problems cannot be solved without a significant increase in citizen participation and oversight of government activity. He argues that our ancestors got it done, but today's citizens are seriously neglecting their responsibilities.
