Michael Abramowitz of Freedom House joins Matt Kibbe to talk about the need to support democratic movements springing up around the globe, from Hong Kong to Sudan. Freedom House publishes an annual report on political freedom in the world, and this year’s scorecard focuses on how these movements are largely without leaders. Instead of being led by a charismatic figure like Nelson Mandela or Martin Luther King Jr., the current geopolitical situation shows that individuals are capable of organizing themselves and demanding change from the bottom up.
