Is Democracy Under Siege?

by John C Goodman

“Over the past two decades the American public has become increasingly polarized. So much so, that it’s hard to bring up a public policy topic that doesn’t immediately cause discord. Yet there is one subject on which the left and right agree: democracy is being threatened to an extent perhaps not seen since the Civil War. When asked, ‘What is the thing that worries you and keeps you up at night?’ Vice President Kamala Harris replied ‘democracy.’ Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson couldn’t agree more. There is just one problem. Each side thinks the threat to democracy is coming from the other side.” (01/08/22)
