Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun magazine, criticizes both conservatives and liberals for failing to come up with a vision of society "based on ethical and spiritual sensitivity." The author launches a full-scale attack on the selfishness, materialism, and cynicism afoot in American culture. Envisioning a future where "the uniqueness and preciousness of every human being" is taken seriously, Lerner outlines his nonpartisan proposals for the economy (ethical impact reports), education (the study of world religions), the workplace (job rotation), family (family support networks), and health care (more volunteerism in hospitals). Michael Lerner's politics of meaning is animated by a spiritual sensibility that honors the dignity of all people, the power of compassion, and the mission of repairing the world.
