While some American elected officials have left political life because of its nastiness, historians say that American dialogue has long been uncivil, even during periods of great cohesion. Some studies suggest that hyper-partisanship is linked to greater participation in civic life. So exactly how important is civility to citizen engagement and effective democracy? Join Dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley Henry Brady, the Institute for Civility in Government's Cassandra Dahnke, Arizona State University communications and performance scholar Jennifer Linde, and economist and anthropologist Meenakshi Chakraverti as they discuss whether it's better for democracy if Americans are cordial or fighting like cats and dogs.
