If the principal purpose of government is to foster the conditions necessary to produce a good life for its citizenry, perhaps no political system holds more promise than democracy. Yet this form of government is fraught with challenges. In this course, we will explore some of the features unique to democratically organized societies, we will examine various behaviors, skills, and orientations of mind necessitated by this form of government, and we will each devise our own personalized plan for strengthening our civic engagement. Participants should purchase the short, highly readable text On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century by Timothy Snyder (about $6-$10 on Amazon).
