Watch now: What’s next for democracy? A live Facebook chat

Join us now on Facebook Live for another episode of TED Dialogues, our response to current events, adding insight, context and nuance to the conversations we’re having right now. Join us Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 1–2pm on TED’s Facebook page.

Our speakers are two historians who will try to help us make sense of what’s going on in Washington: Rick Perlstein, journalist and expert on the history of conservatism in the US, will moderate a conversation with Yale history professor Timothy Snyder. Snyder’s book On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century will be published next week. There will be an opportunity for questions from the Facebook Live audience!
