In Instilling Values In Transcending Generations, Tieman Dippel creates a new paradigm in his focus on the power of a culture of morality and individual responsibility to impact the more competitive powers of economics and partisan politics. Rather than a book on morality, it is a book on the power of morality and how to shape society, particularly the coming generation. It teaches them to value individual responsibility and character rather than adopt a concept of victimization. In doing so it explains the necessity of changing the current drift that American culture has taken toward materialistic relativism. More than a single book, it is the culmination of over thirty years of public service and volunteerism in which he actively participated in all three areas of power: economics, politics, and culture. It is a book based on reality that gives great importance to personal dignity in balancing the friction between the enlightenment of technology and education and existing cultural values that structure obligations on historical values.

In my many years in Congress, in my Presidential race, and particularly in my last years as Chairman of the Trade Subcommittee of Ways and Means in the U.S. House of Representatives, I have seen the evolution that he so accurately describes. From the dominance of the power of politics in the ’50s and ’60s, when philosophical systems clashed with leaders such as Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, Chairman Mao, and Russian Premiers Khrushchev and Brezhnev, through to the era of economic power when technology forced decentralization to market economies and did much to end the Cold War with President Reagan, Prime Minister Thatcher, Premier Gorbachev in Russia, Chairman Deng in China, and finally to our modern day when the terrorism of politics and the corruption of economics have led to a redefinition of priorities in a cultural world, the world struggles to find new ways to define its future. The arguments of rich versus poor occur in economics, the concept of large versus small government in politics, and in culture the issue of conscience and a concern for others versus convenience and the materialism and greed for oneself. This book is significant primarily because of its content, but it is also significant because its predecessor, The Language of Conscience, was the first Western book published and distributed by the Press of the Central Party School of the Communist Party of China with the School’s insignia. In the announcement ceremonies, it was noted that it could help provide a bridge with the West on issues of ethics, morality, and cultural values. Perhaps on no issue in my career in Congress did I give more thought than the PNTR legislation necessary for China’s entry into the World Trade Organization. There were many interests considered because we well knew the future potential impact of China on America and the world. Throughout my career, I have been considered a staunch conservative and remain such in support of PNTR on the basis of the benefits of free trade in the hope that it would begin to bridge a relationship with China that would benefit our children. Nothing could be more important to the future than a balanced and co-operative relationship between the United States and China in a turbulent global world.

The Central Party School trains the senior leadership of China; is its major ideological institute; and has long been acknowledged as the place of discussion for change. It could very well be argued that it is the world’s most powerful think tank, so it’s selection of The Language of Conscience and potentially this book that expands upon it for study, gives a vehicle of great importance. It also gives a new approach to thought for the West to learn and understand China. This book gives the vehicle by which that synthesis, which is primarily the best of ancient Chinese culture and Western values, can come together to bring out the best in people and at the same time instill the critical stability of concerns with individual dignity and free markets softened by a culture of nonprofit service. It is a book that helps us define ourselves, view others, and realign our personal and public perspectives.
