Hate and Fear in Politics: How Fear and Anger Endanger Democracy

LWV-Downeast hosts a monthly radio program on democracy in cooperation with WERU FM. 

This month, we’ll talk about hate and fear in politics and whether they undermine democracy: how panic and fear make space for abandoning the rule of law and the regular order; how when we demonize the opposition, it makes room for extraordinary measures to stop them. We’ll take listener calls during the second half of the show.

Special Guests: Joanne Freeman, Professor of History and American Studies at Yale University; and Steve Wessler, Maine human rights educator, trainer, and advocate specializing in conflict resolution.
