Robert Kagan, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a columnist for The Washington Post, is set to deliver a thought-provoking analysis of the perilous state of democracy in the United States at an upcoming event on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, at 7:00 pm in Washington, DC. Kagan's book, "Rebellion: How Antiliberalism is Tearing America Apart -- Again," delves into the historical forces that have brought the country to this critical juncture, where the 2024 election could be the last free election held in a unified America. Kagan's work explores the long-standing tradition of opposition to liberalism and government that has shaped America's character since the time of the Revolution. He argues that Donald Trump's unique ability to tap into this dissent and circumvent the American system has brought the country to the edge of dissolution, not for the first time in its history, but potentially the last. This event promises to be an insightful and engaging exploration of the complex political and social dynamics that are currently unfolding in the United States. As Kagan's analysis suggests, the stakes are high, and the consequences of the 2024 election could have grave implications for both Americans and the world. Attendees will have the opportunity to delve deeper into these critical issues, engage with Kagan's expertise, and gain a better understanding of the historical context and contemporary challenges facing the nation. This event is free and open to the public, with first-come, first-served seating, making it an accessible and valuable opportunity for anyone interested in the future of American democracy.
