Democracy without equality has led to "Ubermensch Escapism"

October 23, 2017 RI Future

Sociologist Michael Kennedy in RI Future, "We live in a world, then, of Ubermensch Escapism where we put our faith in a great leader like Trump or Putin or Orban, or in a simple decision, like Brexit. But these choices only make things worse. For democracy to find its way, its survival, we need to focus immediately, locally, and find ways to address the wicked problems in our communities so that we have means of hope."
