Check out the March 19 archived edition of The Democracy Forum with host Ann Luther, when the topic was the political and social conditions that give rise to conspiracy movements. Why are people drawn to these ideas? What are the conditions in civil society that are feeding into these trends? How have these moments come up in our history? How have we gotten past it before? Can democracy function when these beliefs are widespread?
The Democracy Forum is produced by the League of Women Voters of Maine, in collaboration with WERU. It airs on the 3rd Friday of every month at 4-5 p.m. Past editions are available in our public affairs archives.
