Abstract:

The host, Dr. Charles Cotrell, Academic Vice President of St. Mary's, introduces Mr. Harris Wofford, Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation for National Service and former U.S. Senator. Mr. Wofford, the leading advocate and implementator of service and citizenship in the U.S. in this century, who helped launch Peace Corps, contributed to the landmark study 'Youth and the Needs of the Nation', and, in 1993, co-authored the National and Committee Service Trust Act, proposes that citizen service become a normal expectation for all as part of one's coming of age, and says he would like to make service part of the definition of a successful life. He states that the era of big government is over, that it is time for the era of big citizens, and that a three-dimensional democracy, one in which self-government is real, has three aspects: the vote; the spade -- symbolic of taking action or constructive service, not waiting; and prison -- saying no to injustice. big government is over, that it is time for the era of big citizens, and that a three-dimensional democracy, one in which self-government is real, has three aspects: the vote; the spade -- symbolic of taking action or constructive service, not waiting; and prison -- saying no to injustice.
