Why are modern democracies under such threat? How did civil society become so uncivil, fractious and polarized? And can American governance survive zero-sum politics driven by media echo chambers?
Fluent Politics invites informed, insightful journalists, scholars, politicians and reformers to provide context, depth and nuance on questions and issues of enduring importance. Issues like immigration policy and border security, energy policy and climate change, gun violence and mental health, among other complex issues; but always with attention to the political dynamics complicating consensus and problem solving.
Democracy needs you. But you need your sanity. And so much political coverage is biased and inflammatory. That’s why Fluent Politics strives for accuracy, balance and civility in all our content, avoiding hype, noise, and spin while presenting real knowledge.
