I have long argued that a nation is not democratic if its institutions are not democratic. To date, however, we have managed to enact democracy in only a very few of our institutions, while the vast majority - companies and corporations, departments, schools and institutions - are governed by command, not deliberation. Harold Jarche writes, "David Korten in The Great Turning, described America, the Unfinished Project: Democracy is neither a gift nor a license; it is a possibility realized through practice grounded in a deep commitment to truth and an acceptance of the responsibility to seek justice for all."
