The Republicans join in a phalanx for avariciousness and seem entrenched in a cultural bias of the past. They fail to realize that not only is the American populace becoming more diverse, but through that diversity, along with technological change, cultural change is also taking place. Allen Wheelis (a psychoanalyst) writes in "The Question for Identity," published in 1958, "To remain open to a changing culture and also adapted to it implies the capacity for characterological change. ... Modern man cannot recapture an identity out the past; for his old identity was not lost, but outgrown. Identity is not, therefore to be found; it is to be created and achieved." This implies that personal growth should not be seen as being necessitated by cultural change in order to achieve balance, but that personal growth should be embraced.
