What Is the True Meaning of the Fourth of July?

July 6, 2018

When we celebrate the Fourth of July, what are we truly celebrating? Is it our country’s government and whatever policies it happens to pursue? Or is it the ideals upon which the country was founded? What are those ideals and what has been the American experience that resulted from them? What is the difference between patriotism and nationalism, between society and the state? The FEEcasters explore these questions and more.
