Never, since 1860, has there been a more necessary time to address the challenges to our democracy. As the United States lurched toward the Civil War, we were confronted with many of the issues that once again rear their heads; a country hopelessly polarized; newspapers filled with untruths; the Electoral College, giving extra power to small, rural states; and possibly most significant, slavery, often called “America’s Original Sin” about to bring the nation to war with itself and make race an issue that we would have to contend with up to this very day.
