I'm a Senior Research Fellow at a US University. The 9/11 attack was something of a turning point for me, as it was for many people. I've long been interested in comparative politics, sparked by my friend and advisor Seymour Martin Lipset. But beyond the establishment of liberal democratic systems that institutionalize "power of the people," I feel we may need to devote increasing attention to demosophia, or "wisdom of the people."
