Democracy and Its Crisis
Democracies have failed. It took 2000 years to give a voice to the people, and in a couple of decades that hard-fought success has been eroded, AC Grayling says the crisis requires urgent action. Why did it go wrong? And are there solutions? Most importantly, where is the will to fix it to be found? John Brumby talks with Grayling about the failure of the “best political system we have’ and his convictions about how to put it right.
