“We’re not too dumb for democracy, but we’re encouraged to be when our psychological shortcomings are exploited and because our environment encourages us to make less than ideal decisions.”

Host Alex Paterson sits down with David Moscrop, political theorist and author of Too Dumb For Democracy: Why we make bad political decisions and how we can make better ones. The two chat about David’s new book, how the brain works in partisan environments, and social media’s impact on democracy.
