why we don’t get the best leaders

Why are we shirking away from politics? Is it disinterest? A feeling of powerlessness? According to Yale professor Hélène Landemore the answer is: our system is profoundly unjust. Because it’s not the best candidates who get elected; it’s the richest, the most charismatic, the most ambitious. Hélène Landemore (online) discusses real democracy – one that works – with writer and cultural historian David Van Reybrouck.
