Lecture 1/24 Political Culture Culture : A way of thinking or mode of behavior Political Culture : The orientation (basic values, beliefs, attitudes, predispositions, and expectations) of citizens toward the political system and toward themselves as actors in it. Example: The general belief (90%) that freedom of speech is vitally important is an element of the political culture in the United States. Liberal Consensus/American Creed : Individualism, Property, Liberty, Democracy, and Religion are all thought to be fundamentally important and a notion of equality pervades all of them. Individualism : Allow individuals to succeed to the maximum extent possible. Individuals should be treated equally, regardless of group or other characteristics Equal chance rather than equal result. Most Americans favor the idea of giving everyone equal opportunity, but very few of them support government actions to reduce income inequality, even though many agree that income inequality is a problem.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
