How To Fix Democracy?

So how do we fix democracy? Or, at least, how do we protect liberal democracy from the rise of neo-authoritarian governments and leaders around the world. I'll be giving my own take in a How To Fix Democracy speech next Thursday lunchtime at the very cool Betaworks Studio in New York City. Please RSVP if you can attend. Lunch will be served and audience participation will, of course, be actively encouraged.

And if you can't make it next week, the next best thing is to watch my How To Fix Democracy video series. The latest interviews are with Madeleine Albright, Tzipi Livniand Sir Malcolm Rifkind all done last month in Kansas City at the Albright Forum. I particularly enjoyed the Livni interview with her call for liberal internationalists around the world to unite. Watch it too for some provocative remarks about Middle Eastern peace and her take on the Two State solution in Israel/Palestine.

I trust you are also subscribing to My Keen On podcast series. My latest conversations are with Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman about the state of American democracy and the Turkish writer Ece Temelkuran about the pathologies of authoritarianism. The show is also being distributed now on Lithub, the most highly trafficked independent website about books.

Really hope to see some of you next week in NYC so I can hear your take on how to fix democracy.
