Civility Lost explores principles and expectations for a democratic society, and how differences can be approached civilly to explore and define solutions. Differences are inevitable in a democratic republic by its very nature. Citizens must engage in respectful conversations to build greater understanding. Goens begins with how America has become disunited and concludes with what is needed for the foundation of a civil society. Civility is essential for citizens to engage in self-government.
