We speak often of Democracy, but do we really know what it is? We point to Athens as an example. But what was Greek Democracy really like? A conversation with Dr. Paul Cartledge, A.G. Leventis Senior Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge, author of "Democracy: A Life."
We look at democracy as it existed in Athens, what the American Framers thought of it, and what the future of democracy might be. Also we provide some information for that 'Democracy vs. Republic' debate. (A lot of topics here and while we chose not to break it up in 2 parts, you might want to listen to it in 2 parts.)
Music from Lee Rosevere on this episode.
