Democracy is Hard Work

This is much watch television. If anyone wants to understand how difficult it is to build a democratic mindset from the ashes of communist/totalitarian rule, this show maps out the treacherous journey with humor and a type of "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" idealism that makes you realize that democracy is hard work. A main message of this show--we are all responsible for our government's success or failure. There are adult themes, and off colored jokes, but they can be discussed as a family. Mature middle schoolers would be fine with some of the humor. I think we owe it to the Ukrainian people to watch this show. For parents that are ready to discuss what does it mean to live in a democracy, Servant of the People can help you reflect on our struggles--and more importantly, what is our responsibility to protect the ideals of democracy.
