An anthropologist looks at American values

The Aristocratic Reign Of Group Preferences by Peter Wood (Minding the Campus, January 25, 2008) takes a look at why some people support policies that favor one group over another, and why some of them have such trouble seeing the consequences of what they do. He notes that there are different sorts of advocates, pushing preferences for different reasons. He also addresses how America is different from most of the rest of the world, and why it runs counter to core American values - and liberal ones - to support group preferences.
