Bill speaks with Nancy Rosenblum, Harvard University Senator Joseph Clark Professor of Ethics in Politics and Government emerita, who wrote the book Good Neighbors: The Democracy of Everyday Life.  Together they explore everyday democracy,  neighborly as well as the liberatory democratic currents in parenting, sexuality, civic life, gender relations, even race relations and the workplace, that still have the initiative in U.S. life, though furiously resisted. They discuss the relationship of everyday democracy with our periodic electoral democracy: voting on candidates or ballot measures that set public policy and make political decisions. You can't have one without the other.
