The 2018 Donald J. Sutherland Lecture: Ilya Somin

The 2018 Donald J. Sutherland Lecture presents Ilya Somin. One of the biggest problems with modern democracy is that most of the public is usually ignorant of politics and government. Many people believe that their votes are unlikely to change the outcome of an election and don't see the point in learning much about politics. This creates a nation of people with little political knowledge and little ability to objectively evaluate what they do know. Ilya Somin writes regularly for the Volokh Conspiracy law and politics blog at The Washington Post. He is also the author of The Grasping Hand: Kelo v. City of New London and the Limits of Eminent Domain (2015) and coauthor of A Conspiracy Against Obamacare: The Volokh Conspiracy and the Health Care Case (2013).

Speaker: Ilya Somin, Professor of law at George Mason University School of Law and the author, Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter

 

The Donald J. Sutherland Lecture is named for the former Hofstra trustee who endowed the annual event.

Co-sponsored by the Hofstra Cultural Center.
