Democracy in America

Viewers are given a deeper understanding of the principles and workings of American democracy, and its current precarious state.

The series demonstrates that Americans still believe that democracy is the worthiest form of government, but reveals that many eligible citizens do not vote, and a majority of Americans distrust their government.

This disengagement from political and civic life may stem from a lack of basic knowledge concerning political affairs, which tends to preclude participation.

The half-hour shows cover such topics as: citizenship, the Constitution, federalism, civil liberties, the presidency and more.
