Our Own Worst Enemy: The Assault from within on Modern Democracy Free Audiobook Download by Tom Nichols

Modern democracy is under assault from within: by the cultural and digital revolution, by the rise of populism, and by the unintended consequences of our own civic engagement. Tom Nichols has written a timely and impassioned new book on the impending crisis that threatens to undermine the very fabric of our nation. Throughout his wide-ranging study, Nichols illustrates how we are at risk for being torn apart by a system that was designed to be inclusive but is now failing us in its fundamental mission of fairness

"Our Own Worst Enemy: The Assault from within on Modern Democracy" is a book written by Tom Nichols, an American political scientist in which he argues that "community culture is crushing modern democracy." In the audiobook download for "Our Own Worst Enemy", Nichols presents his ideas about how the rise of internet culture has led to what he calls the "'gospel' of individualism."

Narrated by Tom Nichols, this historical and philosophical treatise is written around the idea of what constitutes a healthy democracy. Nichols views democracy as an inherently flawed system that has been repeatedly undermined by its own citizens over time. To understand how democracies work, it's important to go back in history to see how they came to be in the first place and how they've evolved since then.

People are angry in America, more than at any point in the last hundred years. There is a sense that something has gone wrong, that we're not just going through hard times - it feels like the end of an era. This book is an attempt to understand what people are feeling so they can be better able to change things for the better. It's written by a professor at the Naval War College, who has been fighting America's political battles since 9/11.

Technological progress has led to a problem that is more grave than any of the problems it has been solving. It has allowed those people who are in charge of shaping our society to develop a dangerously narrow view of what democracy really means. Democracy is not just about "the people," it is about the idea that sovereignty rests with, and resides within, the people. The idea that power resides within everyone and they decide how, when, and where it is exercised. It's an idea Thomas Paine called "a natural right."

In this audiobook, Tom Nichols offers a provocative critique of how modern democracy is failing. He examines the forces that are causing democratic systems to breakdown at an increasing rate and why democratic capitalism is not addressing these problems.
