Why I’m Proud to Be an American

The American past includes a great number of tragic mistakes, and it can be difficult, given our current political realities, to be hopeful about the future of democracy. Jon Shelton, a UW-Green Bay professor, argues that we have an important heritage of democratic activism in our past, however, on which we can draw to strengthen ourselves during these times.

Shelton is professor and chair of democracy and justice studies at UW-Green Bay. He is the author of The Education Myth: How Human Capital Trumped Social Democracy and is a member of Green Bay’s First Ever Equal Rights Commission.
