Govern America | March 21, 2015 | Brand America

Hosts: Darren Weeks, Nancy Levant


Obama floats the idea of mandatory voting. EPA floats the idea of regulating barbecues and hotel showers. California water crisis might lead to rationing and a loss of 1/3 of the nation's food supply. We dissect a talk, given to students, by State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, and dive deep into 20th century sociologist Benjamin Kidd to find his philosophies coming into fruition in 21st century America, and throughout the world.
