1/4/07: Political Literacy

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Jeffrey Nielsen believes that the way to rejuvenate a democracy is one person, one household, and one community at a time. To do this, he has created The Democracy House Project which aims to get people thinking and talking about politics in their own community. The idea is for individuals to host these political literacy workshops in their home; Nielsen has described it as a kind of multi-level marketing scheme for democracy. Jeffrey Nielsen joins Doug on Thursday for a conversation about each citizen's responsibility towards good government.
