Andrei Cherny is Founder and Co-Editor of Democracy: A Journal of Ideas, a quarterly journal of serious progressive thought that seeks to spur new ideas about the big challenges of the 21st century. Democracy – available in print and online – has a readership in every state and 90 countries around the world. Its ideas have made their way into the national political debate. The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd called it “a progressive journal to ponder big ideas that might help the wretched Democrats stop driving on Ambien and snatch back a little power.”
