Editorial Reviews

Since Mario Cuomo retired from government in 1994, American culture, politics, and daily life have undergone a dramatic shift, largely attributable to the events of 9/11, two foreign wars, economic collapse, and declining civil liberties. In this 92nd Street Y lecture, Cuomo presents a bleak assessment of America’s wellbeing in the 21st century. Never one to balk at a perceived injustice, the former governor lambastes an economic policy that intensifies wealth disparity while neglecting the government’s mounting deficits. On social issues, Cuomo laments the wave of fundamentalist religious zealotry that has swept the nation, pointing out that conservative Christians are afforded cultural and economic favoritism while more marginalized groups - including Muslims and post-Katrina New Orleans residents - have seen their opportunities sharply diminish.

What are our common values as Americans? Mario Cuomo, a Democrat who served three terms as New York governor, addresses these compelling questions.This event took place on October 2, 2005.
