Political Reform At Home and Abroad
Political Reform At Home and Abroad
Saturday, November 1,2008 08:53

On the Washington Post’s “On Faith” blog, Daniel Brumberg writes about the “cathartic awakening” that free and fair elections can bring to a public made apathetic by years of autocratic rule. He notes that even the United States is prone to political apathy, and he stresses that the U.S. must put its own house in order if it is to credibly promote democratic reform abroad. Brumberg sees hopeful signs of revival in our political system during this election cycle. He concludes:

“Regardless of who wins on November 4, much will have to be done in the ensuing year to demonstrate to ourselves and to the world that America truly is a reemerging democracy that can legitimately promote the creed of freedom abroad.”
