Talking About Politics: "What is the Future of American Democracy?" (past event)

Democracy means the rule of the people, but there is little agreement in American politics today about who “the people” are and on who’s behalf they should rule. This conflict has been aggravated by partisan polarization, failing institutions, the weaponization of voting laws, a lack of social trust, the spread of disinformation, and many other factors. Additionally, recent polling indicates that 1 in 5 Americans favor some version of authoritarianism and a quarter of all Americans say that political violence may be necessary to “protect America”.

So then, what is the future of American democracy? Come learn more about the issue and add your important voice to the discussion!

Discussion led by Political Science professor Rich Holtzman
With real-time information assistance from Krupp Library’s Research & Instruction Librarian, Dymond Bush, and Manager of Research & Instruction Services, Allison Papini.
