About the Event

The  mass riot at the Capitol on January 6, 2021 deeply shocked most  Americans, but was connected to illiberal elements in America society  that have existed since the founding of the nation.  This lecture traces  the connections between the ideas animating the January 6 riot and  illiberalism in America and proposes some ideas on how to heal a nation  that has become dangerously polarized and troublingly anti-democratic.
