Associate Professor of Government Peter Cannavò published "Individualism or Independence?," on Huffington Post on Sept. 10. His piece addressed the Republican Party's embrace of both economic individualism and personal independence as fundamental American values and suggested that the two ideals may be incompatible. Cannavò also argued that the American Founders supported personal independence but were not necessarily economic individualists.
