Westerners believe that their academic studies on emotions, psychology, culture, values, and equality hold important lessons for all people. And yet many more residents of the world do not at all agree with the conclusions of these important studies, and hold completely different ideas about how to govern, live, work, and survive. Join Dr. Kent Bottles as he explores why the U.S. keeps trying to establish Jeffersonian democracies in countries that don't want such governments. Lunch is included.
