ABSTRACT
Environmental Quality Sciences; Hebrew University of Jerusalem; Israel.Ongoing political; military and social violence gives the impression that liberal ideas of freedom; democracy and multicultural society do not serve as a barrier to the shedding of blood. This paper shows that recognizing the way powerful interests color our conceptions of truth and value and need not automatically result in a purge of all existing social-political categories. Consequently; the paper addresses many of the ambiguities that a critique of ideology and values tends to evoke; paying special attention to the prevailing explanations of world power; violence and world peace in our contemporary reality; especially in the fields of sociology and ideology. The significance of several factors in the American Weltanschauung that have a major impact on life today have been examined.
