Democracy’s Discontent / Vortrag von Michael J. Sandel (Harvard University)
6. June 2023, 19:00 bis 20:30
The divide between winners and losers in our societies has been deepening, poisoning our politics and setting us apart. The polarization that afflicts politics today was decades in the making, the result of a neoliberal globalization project embraced by center-left and center-right parties alike. At a time when democracy is in peril, governing elites need to acknowledge the failure of that project. This means rethinking meritocratic notions of success, renewing the dignity of work, and seeking a „political economy of citizenship.“ Addressing democracy’s discontent requires taking seriously the legitimate grievances that fuel the populist backlash against elites.
