When we say “democracy” is under threat in America, what is really being threatened? Often missing in the debate about “democracy threatened” is a simple but powerful notion: The best way to get at the truth is through a clash of ideas, driven by free and unfettered speech. In this week’s WhoWhatWhy podcast, we talk with professor Corey Brettschneider. He is an expert on the US constitution, editor of the Penguin Liberty series, and a professor of constitutional law and politics at Brown University. Brettschneider argues that we should view democracy not just as a process, a tool of governance, a way of casting and counting votes. What’s actually at stake in defending democracy are the underlying values that it represents: the free exchange of ideas that allows us to reason, debate, and seek the truth — concepts at the heart of the Enlightenment, and the design elements of the Founders when they shaped the US constitution. ...

In March of 2006, John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago, and Steven Walt Of Harvard published their seminal book revealing the machinations of the powerful Israeli Lobby. Mearsheimer has stayed with the subject ever since. Here he gives an update to the Special US/Israel relationship as he sees it through his research.
