PAST EVENT Tuesday September 15 2020

Americans are focused on the November elections. Elections of course matter greatly. But increasingly, unelected actors are responsible for a great deal of the way our government influences our daily lives. These unelected actors’ decisions will in many cases be largely unaffected by November’s election outcome.

In his new book, The Unelected: How an Unaccountable Elite is Governing America, Manhattan Institute senior fellow James R. Copland shines a light on this phenomenon. Blending real-world examples with cutting-edge legal analysis, Copland shows how modern American government lost much of its accountability to the voting public. And he tells the stories of ordinary people whose lives were upended by the unaccountable government apparatus.

Join Copland and National Review senior writer Dan McLaughlin for a conversation about his new book—and the work that lies ahead to repair the rule of law and restore the constitutional design.
