Is the United States really a democracy? Is the two-party system a two-party dictatorship? Are there fundamental differences between the Democratic and Republican Parties? How does the U.S. electoral system compare with those of other countries?
What is the proper role of government? Should health care be privatized or public? What drives the Federal government to increasingly fund national security over social security?
These are among the many questions to be discussed in a forum led by Sharat G. Lin. Dr. Lin is president of the San Jose Peace and Justice Center. He writes on global political economy, the Middle East, labor migration, and public health.
