Our Democracy’s Fatal Flaw

5 June, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Nick Biddle leads an interactive forum on democracy in America–focusing on the clearly stated goal of the writers of the Constitution to limit democracy, not to enhance it. The Founding Fathers valued “the rights of property” over “the rights of people.” Consequently, since the beginning, the U.S. government has functioned to privilege private wealth over commonwealth. In this light, the Citizen’s United decision of 2010 and the current state of American government are fully consistent with the goals of the Founding Fathers. This discussion will look to frame a strategy for remedying the flaws of democracy before they become fatal.
