Since its origins, democracy has been a work in progress. Today, many question its resilience. The Bertelsmann Foundation, Institute for Canadian Citizenship, and Humanity in Action have teamed up with Andrew Keen, author of How to Fix the Future, for Season Four of How to Fix Democracy: a video and podcast series exploring practical responses to the threats facing democracies around the world. Host Andrew Keen interviews prominent thinkers, writers, politicians, technologists, and business leaders who enlighten and challenge us as we seek the answers to How to Fix Democracy.
Season 4 Episode 3 titled “Bridging the Partisan Divide” explores what it means to engage with someone on the other side of the political aisle. For that, host Andrew Keen was joined by Mónica Guzmán, the author of “I Never Thought of it That Way,” a book on the ways in which American citizens can move beyond political barriers and work together to create a less divided political system.
Together, they discuss the dire state of the political landscape in the United States today, as well steps that we can take to fix it. (watch | listen)
