Beyond King of the Mountain: Can Democracy Evolve?

Lincoln's phrase, of the people, by the people, for the people," still sums up widely held notions about democracy. But a growing number of activists, theorists, and leaders feel that in order to fully address the needs and rights of all participants, our existing paradigms of representative government need to change. This film examines challenges that many democratic systems are currently facing and suggests that the future of democracy lies in an inclusive, non-adversarial framework-one which eschews the competitive electoral process. Experts from a variety of political and sociological disciplines share their thoughts on cooperation, planning, diversity, human instinct, and how these relate to the global, egalitarian community they believe is possible.
