Rather than the Salinas Valley, the story takes place in the fictional hamlet of New Baytown, in northern Maine.4/5. Michael Sandel's Democracy's Discontent is a miss for me because I think he misunderstands what liberalism is in its classical philosophical sense.

Classical Liberalism presumes the most limited form of government possible on the grounds that we ought to be suspicious of any person or institution claiming to possess political power/5. United in Discontent, Dimitrios Theodossopoulos, Elisabeth Kirtsoglou books.

The Winter of Discontent was the winter of –79 in the United Kingdom, during which there were widespread strikes by public sector trade unions demanding larger pay rises, following the ongoing pay caps of the Labour Party government led by James Callaghan against Trades Union Congress (TUC) opposition to control inflation, during the coldest winter for 16 years.
