Liberal democracy is a marathon 

Dr. Arjun Appadurai is Professor of Media, Culture and Communication at New York University and Visiting Professor at the Institute for European Ethnology at the Humboldt University.

“Why are so many people around the world growing tired of liberal democracy? Why are demagogues like Erdogan and Trump able to attract massive throngs of adoring supporters? In this interview, Arjun Appadurai compares the liberal democratic process to that of a marathon: it requires endurance and patience.” www.thegreatregression.eu
