How to Fix Democracy

Dec 16, 2022

The State of American Democracy in the Shadow of January 6th 

Nearly two years on, the January 6th insurrection is still lingering over Washington, DC like a dark cloud. The events leading up to the Capitol insurrection, as well as the attack itself, have signaled a major threat to American democracy. Will the United States be able to recover fully from these events, or is the damage irreparable? Does the presidency of Joe Biden mean that healing can take place, or will future political leaders seek to insight violence whenever their platform is threatened? 

Larry Diamond is a senior fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University. He is the author of several books, including Ill Winds and The Spirit of Democracy. In this episode of How to Fix Democracy, he joins host Andrew Keen to discuss the state of democracy in the United States post-January 6th. Take a listen!
