Ep. 18 – Democracy, More or Less | Dr. Bruce Cain

Democracy is almost universally seen as a good thing, but it has serious drawbacks.

Is there any alternative to democracy? Are there any constraints on democracy? Is there any recourse a minority has when a majority oppresses them?

What makes democracy – and government in general – legitimate?

To help me answer these questions in political theory, I’m joined by Dr. Bruce Cain of Stanford University.
