Take America Back: The Concept of the Corporation Chapter 3
Drucker notes that Americans have a fluid connection to their society. In Germany, he could find people who despised the Nazis but loyally fought for their country in the second world war. He sees Americans as loyal to this combination of pragmatism and idealism. The loyalty produces the “take it back” mentality, the idea that the institutions of society no longer meet the goals of society and hence need to be reclaimed by those tho really understands those goals. In the 1960s, the left made those claims. It is now the right raising that issue. And so things progress.
