Democracies are failing and can't fix the issues that deeply impact our societies, and there's reasons for that. The Civics Factor is a vehicle to discuss how democracies can do better and solve long-term, systemic issues. Hosted by former politico, candidate, staffer, and policymaker Mark McInnes, the Civics Factor frames civics as group problem-solving. Tribalism and the perverse dopamine of hyperpartisanship, propaganda and the manipulation of public opinion, the limits and potential for human empathy, the role of journalist and the techno-future of the public square, all drawn from the headlines and stories and memes of what's going on in the world today. Civics education is a vital ingredient in an effective democracy. But education, real, lasting, effective knowledge-sharing, has been ignored and abused as a football for decades under the Cold War. As a result, we’ve lost important lessons. This podcast incorporates history, anthropology, psychology, political science, and more.
