About this Episode
One Nation, Two Cultures presents Himmelfarb's autopsy of American cultural decline. She describes how Victorian values prevailed in America up until the middle of the 20th century. But, as society became more affluent, morality and culture were liberalized and democratized. A loose system of morality emerged and became available to everyone.
