Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter of the book illustrates some of the ramifications of a pragmatic critical theory, particularly regarding two social developments in America, which makes America less of an exceptional society and less of a model for the rest of the world as America is becoming more like the rest of the world, particularly in its class system. The book can be thought of as building on the insights of Max Weber but going beyond him, providing a meditation on the relation between social cohesiveness, cultural values, and prospects for political democracy. It discusses that there is a difference between management and image-management, and that it is no surprise that experts in image-management get to rise to be figurehead leaders of organizations, and through politics of societies.

Keywords: American government; democracy; Max Weber
