    A true democracy requires an enlightened electorate. But voters are human and they are vulnerable to several psychological processes that may distort decision-making, impede rationality and make one open to the demagogue’s appeal.

    A true democracy requires an enlightened electorate. But voters are human and they are vulnerable to several psychological processes that may distort decision-making, impede rationality and make one open to the demagogue’s appeal. As a result of this cognitive contamination, national decision-making may become corrupted and non-democratic. We will look at several of these corrupting processes and suggest how democracy may be made to move more effectively toward full actualization.

    By the time of Jackson's election (1828) the US looked nothing like it had less than forty years earlier when Washington established the Presidency. The dynamic, rapidly expanding nation now challenged the Executive Office to lead the new America while maintaining the framework laid out by the first generation. The new issues would parallel the old, mainly the unresolved problem of slavery, which would intensify and ultimately fall to the President to resolve. We will look into how this very dramatic period in our history changed the Office of the President. There is no need to have been in the previous classes to enjoy this one. Come along and have some fun with us!`

    “So you’re the little lady who started this great war!” said President Abraham Lincoln in the fall of 1862 when he finally met Harriet Beecher Stowe, the author of the blockbuster antislavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin. But Lincoln might just well have been talking to and about Harriet Tubman, the most famous conductor on America’s underground Railroad. Both women’s extraordinary activism advanced the fight against slavery and edged this country closer to Civil War.

    King of the Britons and central figure of the Arthurian legends comes to life in Geoffrey’s of Monmouth’s Historia Regum Britanniae. Long considered to be nothing but a story, Arthur’s name appears in several lists for the 7th to the 10th Century… lists which only include known historical figures. Why would respected historians include a fictional character in their historical works… unless, of course, he wasn’t as fictional as we think he is. Class is given via Zoom. You must have a computer/tablet/phone with audio and video capability.
