"Democracy requires laws, it requires constitutions, yes, but it also depends on what Tocqueville called the 'democratic dispositions.' These include a preparedness to work with others for shared ends." – Jean Bethke Elshtain, Ph.D.

Dr. Jean Bethke Elshtain, author of Democracy on Trial and the first Laura Spelman Rockefeller Professor of Social and Political Ethics in the University of Chicago Divinity School, speaks on the decline of civil discourse and the overall state of American democracy at the end of the 20th century.
