America’s founders faced a question rare in human history—if we designed a government from scratch, what would it look like? Their answer shaped the world we live in today.
Over the last 241 years, our country has grown larger and more complicated. What have we learned that could be applied to our current government? If we took on the same thought experiment the founders did, what new insights would we have into tools to tackle challenges like racism, environmental degradation and globalization?
Could technology, social science and two centuries of democratic “beta testing” lead to a better future?
If we were to create "America From Scratch" today, what would it look like? How would we vote? What services would government provide? How many branches of government would we have, if we had them at all?
