Democracy is a relatively new phenomenon, albeit one that claims to have ancient roots. What does the Church think about it as a form of governance? And what does it teach regarding other forms of government such as oligarchies, dictatorships or monarchies? How should Christians whether rulers or ruled participate in government? And what should we do when we find ourselves at odds with the powers-that-be? A Dominican friar will lead us through a discussion of great contemporary relevance in a year that will see multiple national elections.
