Rory Stewart’s latest TED speech, given at a TEDx event in London hosted by the Houses of Parliament, is now featured on TED’s home page. Rory’s speech, ‘Why democracy matters’ examines the crisis in democracy in Britain and across the world, and suggests how politicians should respond to reinvigorate the relationship between citizens and democracy. “The point about democracy is not that it delivers legitimate, effective, prosperous rule of law. It’s not that it guarantees peace with itself or with its neighbors. … Democracy matters because it reflects an idea of equality.”
