Political scientist and global democracy expert Larry Diamond says the world is in a recession of democracy: "Liberal democracies are becoming more intolerant. Illiberal democracies are electing authoritarian personalities... authoritarian regimes that once coexisted with pockets of opposition no longer see the need to bother." His new book "Ill Winds" warns that the U.S.'s role as an international champion of liberal democracy is needed now more than ever to counteract Russia and China's increasing global influence. Diamond joins Forum to talk about the book and what individuals can do to curb the current authoritarian trend.
