New episode on fixes to democracy

Dear blog readers, this week’s episode is out now on your podcatchers and here https://hiphination.org/season-3-episodes/s3-episode-5-demons-of-democracy/

It is about two proposals to fix the current state of the democracy in the west, compulsory voting, or epistocracy, the view that only the knowledgeable and rational get to vote. We investigate the arguments and go into democratic schools that do both in order to learn about the costs and benefits of giving the vote to children, who many believe are too ignorant and irrational to get to vote. Enjoy!
