Extreme Autocracy Altamar - Navigating the High Seas of Global Politics

    • Politics

As Russia escalates its merciless attack on Ukraine, there is much talk of a newly reunited West taking a collective position and presenting a strong front against Putin. But is consensus real?  All over the world, we are seeing large percentages of voters embracing a populist candidate with autocratic tendencies. From Marine Le Pen in France, Duterte in the Philippines, and even the lingering political presence of Trump in the United States. Has democracy lost its appeal among voters?
Altamar hosts Peter Schechter and Muni Jensen are joined by Moisés Naim, a globally syndicated columnist and author of the recent book The Revenge of Power. Altamar’s ‘Téa’s Take’ by Téa Ivanovic delves into youth civic participation around the world.
