Some topics in the first lecture on the tape include: relationship of church and state, racism in America, freedom of association in non-government organizations, cost of healthcare, equalization of education across different regions, the struggle against world Communism, domestic repression under the guise of anti-Communism, the extents or limits of the welfare state, and crime and corruption. In the second lecture on the tape Lindeman addresses the following topics: population growth and world hunger; malaise in America; values in a democracy; "scientifically-testable" democratic values; diversity and individuality vs. conformity in a democracy; means vs. ends in democratic and Communist societies; points from his book The Democratic Way of Life, written with T.V.
