Exploring what is needed and what may need to change to preserve American democracy.
What is needed for democratic societies to thrive? How has media and social media in the U.S. affected our democracy? Does a two-party system and an electoral college still work today? In episode 3, we explore what is needed and what may need to change to preserve American democracy. By looking at the basic pillars of a democratic society — freedom of speech, free and fair elections and a focus on human rights — we are challenged to rise to the occasion, participate in civic discourse and take action.
