What History Can Teach Us About the Attack on Democracy

In this episode, Spencer talks about what history can teach us about how to face the attack on democracy happening now:

  • Why we can’t “just move on” after the Capitol riot — or everything else that’s happened over the past four years.
  • The circle of shared moral values that must encompass democracy and how each of us can and must defend it — starting by simply speaking up.
  • Lessons from other countries, especially about the consequences of silence: Germany, South Africa, Northern Ireland, and France.
