Overview

In America, the ethnic minorities are about to become "the majority." What was mostly a White European Christian-capitalistic dominated country is at a turning point, where we need to become more conscious of the complex minority cultural influences that have long been working in the background. Appreciating the many minority European-American threads as well as non-European influences at work, we see a richly interwoven social fabric that allows for many varied views on economic relations as well as on religious belief. This book explores these different threads and their consequences.

Capitalism has become an unchallenged idea, a cultural universal, and so dogmatic that coupled with Christianity it has become America's dominant religion. However, capitalism is a nineteenth century concept created in the bygone industrial era. In the twenty-first century capitalism has started to fail and the system is showing decay. Unfortunately, America is an ethnocentric country whose jingoistic belief in its own exceptionalism may prevent needed change. American culture has been both magnificent and disastrous. It has been both inclusive and intolerant. Now it stands at a crossroad and must decide what road to take. Are we to enter a renaissance or a dark age?
