Meditation on Democracy
In Project: Community Matters

A 5-minute mashup of videos by Michele Swenson related to issues of democracy playing off of themes of her book Democracy Under Assault: TheoPolitics, Incivility and Violence on the Right. The book examines the many subversions of democracy at every level of government intensified by notions of corporate, religious white male supremacist entitlement that have gained hold over a half century, consequent with the upward transfer of power and wealth.

The videos illuminate the corporate money at the heart of the preemption of local/human rights, where the heavily subsidized oil and gas industry dominates the state. The last segment about animal rescue represents the common good, a principle at the heart of democratic government.
