Ballot Box With Hand Voting

Below is a video of a recent forum at the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government, on the challenges facing democracy. I spoke about the dangers of political ignorance, discussed more fully in my book Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter. The other participants were Jason Brennan (Georgetown), Melissa Williams (University of Toronto), and Christopher Robichaud (Kennedy School, Harvard).

Brennan is the author of the important new book Against Democracy, which I reviewed here.
