WWWWD? (What Would Walt Whitman Do?)

Walt Whitman is called “The Bard of Democracy,” for giving voice to the (once upon a time?) egalitarian aspirations of our country. He came from a family of progressives and embraced the causes of social justice, and yet in his poetry he often takes a stance of classic Buddhist “detachment,” as described by and exemplified by Rabindranath Tagore. Did Whitman ever reconcile detachment and his yearning for social justice? Can we?
