  1. What Is Left of American Democracy (on the Eve of the 2020 Elections)?

    Join San Diego State University’s Department of Political Science for a panel discussion featuring two eminent public intellectuals, whose critical perspectives challenge us to think beyond the paradigm of mainstream American politics.

    As the Presidential elections approach, there are troubling signs that American democracy may be in its death throes: daily breaches of long-standing democratic norms, warnings that the elections will not be settled through the ballot box, appeals to the military to uphold electoral results, assassination plots by fascist militias, and all of this in the context of a deadly pandemic, a spiraling economic crisis, racial unrest, and the destruction of the environment.

    How did we get to this point? And what is the way out of this very dangerous crisis?

    Adolph Reed is Professor Emeritus of political science at the University of Pennsylvania specializing in African-American political thought, and the politics of race and class. His recent publications include “Socialism and the Argument Against Race Reductionism” (2020) and “Antiracism: A Neoliberal Alternative to the Left” (2018).

    David North is chairman of the editorial board of the World Socialist Web Site (wsws.org), and the author of numerous books, including The Crisis of American Democracy (2004), The Russian Revolution and the Unfinished Twentieth Century (2014), and A Quarter Century of War (2016).
