Broken Government: How Republican Rule Destroyed the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branches Sept. 13, 2007
Thrusday, September 13
6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Old South Meeting House
Brook signing will follow lecture and discussion.
John W. Dean, counsel to president Richard Nixon, the government’s key witness in the Watergate trial, and best-selling author of Conservatives without Conscience and Worse than Watergate, joins us tonight to address what he sees as the “dysfunction chaos and institutional damage” the Republican party and its core conservatives have brought to the federal government. Are the nation’s current political ills primarily the fault of the Republicans? Have the Democrats been any better? Most importantly, what can politically moderate citizens do to combat extremism, authoritarianism, and incompetence from political leaders of either party? The program is presented in collaboration with the Old South Meeting House as part of the Partners in Public Dialogue Series.
