Long before the election of Donald Trump, Yascha Mounk predicted that democracy was in trouble. A leading voice on the crisis of democracy and the growth of populism, Mounk has now written a book that addresses how liberal societies might survive, called "The People vs. Democracy: Why Our Freedom Is in Danger and How to Save It." This week, Benjamin Wittes spoke with Mounk in the Jungle Studio to discuss the argument his book advances and its implications for the future of liberal democracy around the world.
