Fight for Liberty
Why fight for constitutional democracy?
Democracy is in crisis around the world, besieged by authoritarianism, nationalism, and other illiberal forces. Far-right parties are gaining traction in Europe, Vladimir Putin tightens his grip on Russia and undermines democracy abroad, and America struggles with poisonous threats from the right and left.
But the defenders of democracy are strong too. Taking their cues from the 1788 Federalist Papers, the Renew Democracy Initiative is a collective of pro-democracy advocates from across the political spectrum. This book is our foundational document, a collection of essays that analyze the multi-pronged threats to democracy in the U.S. and abroad, and offer solutions based on fundamental principles such as freedom of speech, a free press, and the rule of law.
Fight for Liberty is a roadmap for the struggle against the rising tide of extremism.
