As founder and president of the two-year-old Institute for Global Ethics (in Camden, Maine), Rushworth Kidder concerns himself not only with chronicling the moral dissonance that characterizes contemporary American society, but also with identifying and trying approaches that address this discord. He is someone who is troubled by what is, but is full of hope for what can be. Earlier this year, Maine Policy Review visited Kidder and queried him about his work and the state of the nation's political values and institutions. This article is an edited version of his comments.
