Democracy: Past, Present… and Future?

Don’t remember the past? Does that mean you’re condemned to repeat it? What does our country’s past tell us about our present— and how can it help us imagine a better future? This week, two leading thinkers, Scot Nakagawa, ChangeLab and Astra Taylor, author & filmmaker, on the tricky challenges of democracy. What are the best tools— and even the best words we can use to create a better future?


  • Scot Nakagawa is the Senior Partner at ChangeLab.
