From the description:

This 1Dime video is a documentary about the history and evolution of US Democracy, based on the political theory of Sheldon Wolin and his book “Democracy Incorporated: Managed Democracy and the Specter of Inverted Totalitarianism” and the Expanded Edition of his book “Politics and Vision: Continuity and Innovation in Western Political Thought.” Wolin’s theories, popularized by the likes of Chris Hedges and Noam Chomsky, are very important for understanding the nature of the American system and what makes it different from other capitalist liberal democracies. My own work (seen in the 1Dime videos and my upcoming book) builds on Wolin’s theories of Managed Democracy and adds a lot to them while also going beyond them, covering certain things Wolin missed.
