This month's show is a follow up to the last show on "The Revolt of the Public and the Crisis of Authority." The title is taken from Alexis de Tocqueville's famous examination of American Democracy. He saw the future threat to modern democracy coming more from subtle "soft despotism" than from an obvious tyranny. In his opinion, Europe had already caught this disease and he sought the cure in American Democracy. If we had paid more attention to his warning, we would not be so surprised by our current "crisis."
