What does it take to make democracy work? The Rules of the Game podcast discusses and compares democratic institutions from around the world.

Researchers, grass-roots political activists and politicians will join me on this journey of dissecting the struggle for fair representation in ...

Humanity is under serious threat. Individual identity and privacy is dead. Law in every jurisdiction has failed to provide security to identity of individual in Cyber age. Such is the failure of Governmental and democratic and corporate systems that even elections and electoral proceses are not secured. Not even a single election held at any level any part of the world is secure. Elections are easily manipulated with investments at fraction of costs. Election and electoral processes and syst ...
 
The Listen, Organize, Act podcast focuses on the history and contemporary practice of community organizing and democratic politics. Alongside this specific focus are two others: the first is to explore how organizing connects democracy and religion, particularly at a local, congregational level; the second is to examine how organizing embodies a distinctive vision and practice of democratic politics.

What most people think of when they hear deliberative democracy probably are citizens’ assemblies. Deliberation is the process of thoughtfully discussing a specific topic, weighing different options, and using logic and reason to form opinions within a group, that then may lead to a decision or consensus. With Ian O’Flynn, I discuss various forms o…

Here at Revolutions per Minute, we are o…
 
Federalism is power-sharing among regions and the central government of a country. It is the vertical division of power. It’s a joint agreement of regions, of states, of communities, that leaves the subnational governments the choice and possibility to find their own appropriate, tailor-made governance solutions for its communities. Federalism can …

Women in Switzerland lacked direct political power until 1971. Up until then, women didn’t have the right to vote and the right to be elected – at least the national level –, despite efforts to introduce women’s suffrage that had started already a hundred years earlier. Yet, once full political rights were obtained, women used the available politic…

Kenya’s 2010 constitution introduced substantial changes to the vertical allocation of political power that has been exercised at two tiers of government since then: the central government and the 47 counties. Despite the devolution of many of Kenya's government functions, the country is organized as a unitary state, and hence county governments ar…
 
We spoke with a Starbucks worker-organizer from Buffalo, NY back in January here on RPM, and since that time the fight has only gotten hotter.

The Swiss Federal Council is a 7-member council that constitutes the executive branch of government. Instead of concentrating power in one person only, as in a presidential system, power is shared among 7 people, the members of the council who are also ministers of the government departments. The 7 Federal Councillors are elected by the joint-sessi…
 
After three long weeks, Putin’s war with Ukraine has devastated the region with mass shellings of Ukrainian towns and villages, and bombings that have included hospitals and kindergartens. All of this has been under the banal guise of a [quote] “special military operation”, words which ring hollow to any Leftist familiar with the lies of Imperial P…

What are political institutions and how did they evolve over time? In this episode I tell the story of how small, local societies based on kin were integrated into monarchies, and then finally made the transition to democracy. First though, I comment on the devastating, barbaric attack by Putin on Ukraine. This is not only an insane assault on the …
 
The specter and reality of war haunts humanity. The imperialist expansion of NATO and right-wing Russian nationalism continue to escalate tensions in the Ukraine, where CIA backed fascist paramilitaries roam the streets.

Considered on its own, the New York Police Department is in the top ten largest armies in the world. Why?

On tonight's show, we speak to Khalil fro…
 
Presidentialism and parliamentarism are the two main forms of government used around the world.

Yesterday two very different visions for the future of New York’s energy system were presented at a marathon 12+ hour long budget hearing on environmental conservation.

In this episode I propose to change the Swiss constitution to implement a single transferable vote electoral system to elect the members of the Council of States (called Ständerat in German). The Council of States is the Senate of Switzerland, the upper of two co-equal chambers, representing the 26 Cantons (states) in the federal government structu…
 
In an effort to exert its power over the Americas, the United States has enforced an embargo on Cuba ever since its revolutionary struggle for independence from American imperialism.

The formation of the United Auto Workers in the 1930s represented the upsurge in organized working class militancy that pushed forward a New Deal. Since that time the UAW has been a base of support for its members that collectively provides workers with a better life.

Reforms of US electoral systems both at the local and national level would fundamentally change US politics.

There are broadly speaking two forms of government: Parliamentarism and presidentialism.

What makes a political system a democracy? Should we be surprised when people lose faith in a system called democracy that is not democratic?

I try to an…
