The Republic: Don't Know What You've Got Until Its Gone (Ep. 1)
The republic for which it stands. Just what does the republic stand for? And will the republic stand during a season of tumult? Before America, the Roman republic stood. And then fell. Is Rome our destiny? Is its experience a useful lens for understanding America at the beginning of the third decade of the 21st century? Governing’s Editor at Large and resident humanities scholar Clay Jenkinson probed these questions with author and historian Ed Watts as part of our continuing effort to put the future in context.
