Political Trust & Distrust 1

Free course. One paragraph per day.

There is rarely agreement within a population on policy priorities and methods. There are a lot of good and bad ideas out there. Some ideas come from our political allies, some come from our opposition. Someone has to sort them out and make decisions. Who can we trust to do that? Is there a trustworthy system for choosing our leaders, policies, and projects? That question is the topic of this short course. We will review what political trust and distrust are and why both are important. We will also explore how our Constitution’s framers dealt with their distrust of government and how Americans assess our system today. Along the way, we identify actions citizens like yourself can take to keep and defend our Republic.
