Donate to Democracy: A Journal of Ideas
Democracy: A Journal of Ideas, Inc. is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating a vibrant and vital progressivism for the 21st century that builds on the movement’s proud history, is true to its central values, and is relevant to present times. We do this by serving as a place where ideas can be developed and important debates can be spurred. We seek breakthrough thinking on the concepts and approaches that respond to the central transformations of our time: the breakdown of the ladder of upward mobility; the promise and problems of a information-based, globalized economy; new national security threats which cross old boundaries and defy old assumptions, from jihadist terrorism to climate change, pandemics, and poverty; and a society where people work and live in new and different ways.
Making this happen takes resources, and for that we rely on you: our readers and supporters. Democracy is completely supported by generous donations of all sizes. If you are interested in supporting Democracy’s work, click here – or mail checks to us directly at: 2120 L Street, NW; Suite 305; Washington, DC 20037. Democracy: A Journal of Ideas, Inc. is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) educational and charitable organization.

German Lessons
Clay Risen: Should progressives frustrated with our democracy pine for a parliamentary system? In a word—nein.
That Old College Lie
Kevin Carey: Are our colleges teaching students well? No. But here's how to make them.
The Next War on Poverty

Federalism and Its Discontents
Greg Anrig: The states are drowning. The best life-preserver that Washington can throw at them is to take over Medicaid.
The Cairo Conundrum
Shadi Hamid: Egypt is the linchpin to America's Middle East policy—a policy that must make interests reinforce ideals, rather than conflict with them.
