Democracy in America is fragile at the moment, and the cracks in our political systems are growing obvious to all. Today, I went to a talk by Frances Moore Lappé and Adam Eichen, authors of a book called Daring Democracy. They offer a critique of moneyed interests in politics, which was rather ho-hum. But they also pointed to a constellation of efforts, many at the hyper local level of democracy coming back together. They call it the Democracy Movement, and include such things as ranked choice voting and cooperative businesses as representative. The talk is part of the Be the Change series that Porter Square Books has been running for over a year now.
