Jonathan Haidt: We Need To Fix Our Divided, Dysfunctional Congress
Haidt—a social psychologist and the author of The Righteous Mind—calls for a massive reform. Every level of the political process needs to be examined because, he says, "our democracy has become anti-democratic." A coveted speaker at TED, Haidt explains why our political leaders make the decisions they do and how we can change our political system to benefit the masses—regardless of their political orientation. Because, as he says, "a great nation must have a way to pass good laws," and right now, Congress doesn't have that figured out.
