Forums: FDR’s “Forgotten Man” vs. Hoover’s “Rugged Individual” hosted at the Cantigny Park (Chicago, IL)
May 14, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm
The Hoover-Roosevelt debate of the 1930s is the contemporary American political, economic, and moral conversation that shapes public policy in the twenty first century in a very powerful way. The very questions that concerned these two presidents are also our burning questions of today. The themes of liberty vs. security, freedom vs. regulation, representative democracy over against the administrative state and an independent judiciary, so important and visionary then, are still the fundamental questions in a world of terrorism, globalization, and uncertainty.
