Political Circus: Why Democracy is F*cked (And What to Do About It)

THU // DEC 12
This is a series about the decades (sometimes centuries) of political research that can help us understand what our political structures are actually doing, why, and how (and whether) to change them. We examine the research and discoveries behind questions like: What does "majority rule" even mean and what are the consequences of it? Are we actually getting more polarized? Why, despite the historical records in the midterm election, do so many candidates and leaders still look the same?

Doors 6:30 PM, show 7:00 PM.
Tickets $12 in advance, $15 at the door.

This event is mixed seated and standing room. Seats are first-come, first-served.
REFUND POLICY: Tickets may be refunded up to 24 hours before the event. Within 24 hours we may take exchanges for other events at our discretion. No refunds after the event.
