David Graeber talked about his book, The Democracy Project: A History, A Crisis, A Movement, in which he argues that America’s political system is only responsive to the wealthy and has disenfranchised the remainder of the population. The author argued that the country’s understandings of democracy must be redefined and focused on inclusion and a greater engagement by the majority of the population. David Graeber spoke with Thomas Frank, author of What’s the Matter with Kansas, at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library in Washington, D.C. close
