with a catchy beat

After visiting America in the 1830’s, French political philosopher Alexis De Tocqueville wrote a book he called “Democracy in America.” 

In it he made note of our obsessive self-interest and in money, and how that leads to a disinterest in future generations.

Most enduring is his warning: 
“In democracy we get the government we deserve.”

Eclectic Method, a Brooklyn-based mashup team summed up the first Presidential debate and Tocqueville’s observation in just two minutes. 

We deserve this because we accept it. ugh.

Change we can believe in.
