As the 2012 presidential campaign heats up, poisonous rhetoric and negative ads are at an all-time high. Can we move beyond polarization and restore civility and functionality to American democracy? Find out by attending the screening and discussion of Patriocracy, a documentary by Denver-based director-producer Brian Malone, on Tuesday, Sept. 18.
Patriocracy illustrates the forces that drive a wedge into the middle ground of America and the solutions required to move forward. This insightful film features top Washington personalities including Senator Kent Conrad, Senator Mark Warner, Ken Rudin, of National Public Radio, and Bob Schieffer, of CBS News.
Sponsored by the Division of Social Sciences and Business and the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Patriocracy will run from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Oakton’s Des Plaines campus, 1600 East Golf Road. Bring your lunch; dessert will be provided.
Attendees will have the opportunity to register to vote during the screening and discussion. Bring two pieces of identification. At least one must show your current address.
