Summary
Max Lerner and five Brandeis students discuss: Who really owns America? What are the chances of moving from one society to another? Do the elites really run America? Is the dictatorship of the elite a conspiracy? Are there conflicts among the elites? Has American business gone soft because their leaders do not understand the urgency of the situation today? Is there a military elite? Does the intellectual elite have control in America? Have the intellectuals failed to make clear to the public that they are in danger of their own destruction? Is democracy lost in the social anarchy that there is today?
