Politeness and Public Life in Early America and Today by Steven C. Bullock
American Antiquarian Society
185 Salisbury Street
Worcester, MA 01609
Long before current fears about incivility in public life , before anxieties about Twitter shaming and cable-news name-calling, politeness was very much on the minds of American leaders. Eighteenth-century leaders like Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin considered politeness an essential part of a free society, a part of the larger project of challenging authoritarian rule. Drawing upon his new book, Tea Sets and Tyranny, this lecture examines why civility seemed so important in early America and why it seems so problematic today.
