The Dark Side of Democratic Structures

From the Audacity of Hope to the Dark Side of Democratic Structures

— November 1, 2013 — Pop Culture
These political democracy talks generally look at American politics and the country's commitment to ensuring free and fair elections where every citizen is guaranteed the right to vote. These speakers also examine other democracy-enabling processes and practices.

The President of the United States Barack Obama has much to say on the topic of American democracy as the head of state and leader of the free world. He references hope in a number of speeches, which was the theme of his campaign when running for office. Former US President Bill Clinton discusses leadership and increasing America's power. Meanwhile political scientist Ivan Krastev offers a more pessimistic view and encourages people to question the legitimacy of democracy as a political system.

The United States tends to be synonymous with democracy. Even with a system that promotes equality and freedom it is important to think critically and examine areas that could be improved, such as the electoral system and equal rights.
