Democracy is destined to fail without an informed and engaged public.
On January 6th, 2021, the Capitol of United States of America and the Constitution upon which our very Republic is built was attacked by domestic, right-wing insurrectionists.
At the behest of the President at a rally at the White House that morning, the mob marched to the Capitol.
