Introducing RSA Spotlights – taking you straight to the heart of the event, highlighting our favourite moments and key talking points.

In this except from 'Political Order and Political Decay', influential political scientist Francis Fukuyama tells the story of mankind’s emergence as a political animal, the development of state, law and democracy, and explores the modern landscape - with its uneasy tension between dictatorships and liberal democracies – arguing that in the US, and in other developed democracies, unmistakable signs of decay have emerged.
