The empire of liberty

The United States is the empire of liberty. Its failures are the failures of an excess of individuality, self-reliance and autonomy. 
The United States has overshot the ethic of individuality so that it has eradicated the ordinary functioning of the communal sector. 
In a society where no-one wants to be obliged to anyone else, everyone ends up isolated and atomized.
