Meet the Neoliberal Administrative-Economic Man–by Larry Arrington

neoliberalFor those of you, especially in the public service, that have not become acquainted with the Civitas Project I would suggest you do so.  Developed and driven by Larry Arrington, the Civitas Project is a private, non-profit corporation in strategic alliance with Stetson University, its Institute for Water and Environmental Resilience and its Center for Community Engagement.  As a yeoman’s part of Mr. Arrington’s effort he has developed what I would call a “Treatise” on the subject of American democracy, individual character, integrity, civic responsibility, community involvement, and the relationship between government and the governed.  He has recently published a comprehensive four volume set of texts including:

The American Adventure: Rediscovering Civitas for a Renewed Democracy

The Cosmopolitan Uprising: Rebuilding Civitas for a New America

The At-Home Advantage: Recovering Our Communities of Memory

Make a Home for Each Other: A Manifesto of Civitas

The nature and breadth of his writing exposes the reader to a plethora of subjects that should be required areas of knowledge for anyone working in the public sector.  This information is foundational and should serve as a core for both academics and students of public administration,  public policy and public service. His perceptive insights are noteable as he clearly highlights  how our societal responsibility to each other goes beyond technocratic efficiency.
