“That could never happen here” is a saying all too familiar in countries that have seen their democratic systems undermined by the insidious influence of authoritarianism and totalitarianism. Harvard professor Daniel Ziblatt has spent years researching this subtle erosion as it occurs throughout history in countries around the world, including our own. He presents his latest co-authored work and explains some of the signs that warn of the deterioration of democratic institutions, and how it can be stopped. Moderated by New York Times contributing op-ed writer Thomas Edsall. NYxNY members will enjoy free tickets to this event.
