Rule by the people results in a myriad of different government structures, but the underlying principle remains fixed: the opportunity of the governed to participate in the selection and decision-making of the governing. No two democracies are identical, but they all possess some degree of participation. Many regard democratic governance as end point of the evolution of government. Case…

The Assault on Ethics

A year and a half into the Trump presidency, its most consequential feature thus far is its assault on ethics. What began as a curiosity and a jolt—reality TV comes to politics— is now routine. Demonstrably false statements arrive daily. Name-calling and outright attacks on reporters, judges, and public figures are standard fare in a stream of tweets, interviews, and rallies.

Red lines are crossed without consequence. As a result, the president…

Digital Deception & Dark Money, with Ann M. Ravel

The term "fake news" is a little too tame, says Ann Ravel of the MapLight Digital Deception Project. Actually, this is foreign and domestic political propaganda aimed at undermining U.S. institutions and democracy. Maplight also tracks the enormous, pervasive problem of "dark money"--contributions by undisclosed donors to influence U.S. campaigns. Yet Ravel is optimistic that once Americans understand what's happening, it can be stopped.

Global Ethics Weekly: Helsinki, Singapore, & the Emerging Trump Doctrine

From the unprecedented Trump-Kim meeting, to what some call a treasonous press conference in Finland, to growing tensions between America and its closest allies, as well as its adversaries, this has been a historic summer for international affairs. RAND Corporation's Ali Wyne unpacks these developments and looks at a potentially busy September for North Korea and the continuing schism between Trump and his top foreign policy advisers.

Inexorable Changes in U.S. Foreign Policy?

Is Trump's presidency a brief aberration after which things will return to normal? That's unlikely, argues Nikolas Gvosdev. In addition to disruptions that have already caused major changes in the international system, ongoing technological, demographic, economic, and military trends are also changing how U.S. foreign policy is understood.
