Unlike the bulk of opinion polling and typical survey research, A New America detects and explains deeper drivers of our behavior, both conscious and unconscious. A unique analysis of the 2000 U.S. election is also offered, further demonstrating these points by examining differences in voting patterns.
Major new typologies of Americans are disclosed that will help bridge our differences with a set of core values and beliefs not commonly known or acknowledged. One of these typologies is The 8 American Types. It offers a context in which individuals and society can better understand themselves, and shows a coherent set of overlapping patterns offering practical ways in which to bridge our society as a whole.
A New America offers hope for the future by offering a roadmap through which "discernment with compassion" can guide our actions to create a positive future. As we re-examine values and beliefs that have often been implicit in our way of life, these initial study findings address the heart of global conflict. Recognizing a universal context of the interconnection of all life and consciousness can allow humankind to become wiser stewards of ourselves as a species and for this planet as a whole.
In this material, we make a case for the social basis of a "culture of wisdom," which currently lies close enough to the surface of our personal and group awareness that it could be quickly brought forth in response to both a new type of leadership and a new type of social movement.
We need only choose a new future for ourselves.
