Village Global's Venture Stories

Should We Ditch Democracy? feat. Dr. Jason Brennan

Open to Truth

Political division and polarization in America have reached a fever pitch. Civic discourse has become a landscape nearly devoid of the intellectual virtues.  And in the midst of this, we still make our decisions in a largely democratic fashion where hardly anyone actually is informed on any important topics.  Could these negative phenomena be the result of a more systemic problem in how we govern ourselves - that is, is democracy itself to blame? Our guest Dr. Jason Brennan, professor at Georgetown University, explores alternatives to democracy that may in fact produce more of the good results we actually care about.  We discuss the traditional reasons democracy has been praised and supported, and examine ways it falls short, and notable alternatives to it.  We closely look at epistocracy, or rule by the knowers, that perhaps the most informed among us should have the greatest say in policy. For a more detailed treatment, check out Jason's book Against Democracy anywhere books are sold. Stay Curious!

Why It's OK to Want to Be Rich (with Jason Brennan)

Free Thoughts

In Jason Brennan's new book, Why It’s OK to Want to Be Rich, he shows that the moralizers have it backwards. He argues that, in general, the more money you make, the more you already do for others, and that even an average wage earner is productively “giving back” to society just by doing her job. In addition, wealth liberates us to have the best chance of leading a life that’s authentically our own. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Time to end the disastrous democratic experiment? Nick Cohen talks to Jason Brennan

The Bunker

If democracy is so great why does it keep producing such terrible results? Nick Cohen of The Observer talks to Georgetown University political philosopher Jason Brennan, author of Against Democracy, about what it means when sweeping democratic mandates arise from underinformed voters. Do people really vote on the basis of policy or simply to be part of the gang? Should you have to pass a test before you can vote? Would Jason criticise our system in front of a Belorussian protestor? And what can Iron Maiden teach us about what’s wrong with democracy?“A key problem is, the average voter basically knows nothing about politics…”“For most people, the act of voting is a little like kicking your dog because you’ve had a bad day at work.”“The average citizen in a democracy is much more authoritarian than the societies they live in. What’s checking them is the elites.” “Why is it so good to live in liberal democracies? Is it because they’re democracies – or because they’re liberal?”“Voters aren’t stupid. It’s more a question of, Is it even worth my while for me to know this stuff?” Presented by Nick Cohen. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producers Jacob Archbold and Jelena Sofrenijevic. Music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Alex Rees. THE BUNKER is a Podmasters Production. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
