Can Democracy Survive?Streaming Video - 2013
In the Cold War era, democratic values of equality, liberty, and tolerance sustained the countries of Western Europe and North America. With the fall of communism, the question becomes, can democracy survive without a clear-cut enemy? Internal pressures have begun to emerge: voting and other forms of democratic expression are in steady decline; the middle class is disappearing; answers to difficult moral questions seem to elude us; and government remains gridlocked on important social issues. This program examines whether democracy can heal itself, or whether it is destined to follow other forms of government down the path to oblivion.
