"Beyond the Frontier:
A UU Response to a Culture of Violence"
Frontier culture, central to the American imaginary, is defined by individualism, freedom from social constraints, and regeneration through violence. The persistent problems that face us, climate apocalypse, the erosion of truth, gun violence, and the commodification of the world, cannot be solved through the logic of the frontier. Indeed, frontier logic may be the very gasoline which fuels it. How can we UUs forge a path forward that grasps the best of the American experiment, transforming frontier violence into humanism and a dedication to the dignity of all creation?
