Audio Archive, Oct. 16 — The Responsibilities of Democracy: Algorithms for Restoring Truth and Beauty in the World

David Carter, minister of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Wichita, is a familiar visitor to our Fellowship. Reverend Carter grew up in Brooklyn, New York, and has made his home in Kansas for the last fifteen years, first in Winfield, with the last decade in Wichita. He comments on this morning’s reflection: “Populist” politicians continue to have a disturbingly large “fan base.” Is that portion of the American electorate simply blind to repeated travesties of decency and civil behavior, or is there something deeper and more insidious at work? Why and how is it that so many American voters are willing to support a candidate blatantly antagonistic to the core values of democracy? Dave Lambert convenes this morning’s service.
