Democracy, American style

Natan Sharansky has written a thought-provoking column about identity and democracy. If he is correct in his observations about different attitudes in Europe compared to the U.S. – especially in regard to Muslims assimilating better here – here is one more reason I am grateful to live in this country. I hope he is also correct that Americans will continue to see democracy and a strong sense of identity as complementary, rather than pitted against each other – regardless of who wins the election in November.
