Put succinctly, the fate of the West is being decided by what happens in the East. At home, American democracy is withering from misinformation, tribalism, domestic terrorism, political intolerance, the dysfunction of Congress, assaults on the press, crippling polarization, the undermining of elections, racial intolerance, inequality and more. We are a superpower at a pivotal crossroads. Will the America of the 21st century make up its mind and act to provide the necessary world leadership to protect democracy in Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan and elsewhere? Will it preserve the American dream of giving our children a better life?” —Secretary Leon Panetta Join us when Secretary Panetta, Co-Chairman of the Panetta Institute for Public Policy, discusses some of the most important issues of our day.
