Their questions on the bottom that required to be answered by using the links.  “Illiberal Democracy”? (#1) https://twitter.com/i/status/1325467156000215047  (video) (Transcript of the video can be found at end of this document) (#2) https://msuweb.montclair.edu/~lebelp/FZakariaIlliberalDemocracy1997.p df (#3) https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/07/opinion/sunday/is-there-a- trumpism-after- trump.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage (#4) https://www.nytimes.com/live/2020/11/08/us/trump- biden?action=click&module=Spotlight&pgtype=Homepage#trump- remains-out-of-sight-but-is-active-on-social-media-where-his-messages- were-flagged-for-inaccuracy (#5) https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-news/trump-biden-election-results-11- 08-20/h_ba5a9841cb82f24e5d502386bc1cfe86 (#6) https://www.cnn.com/videos/tv/2020/11/08/exp-gps-1108-fareeds- take.cnn (#7) https://www.washingtonpost.com/elections/interactive/2020/trump- pandemic-coronavirus-election/ (#8) https://www.nytimes.com/live/2020/11/09/us/joe-biden-trump (#9) https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/08/politics/george-w-bush-congratulates- biden/index.html (#10) https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/09/world/biden-win-russia-china-silence- intl/index.html (#11) https://www.bushcenter.org/about-the-center/newsroom/press- releases/2020/11/president-george-w-bush-statement-joe-biden.html Fareed Zakaria, once the editor of “Foreign Affairs” and the current host of “GPS” on CNN explains the concept of illiberal democracy in his book “The Future of Freedom: Illiberal Democracy at Home and Abroad.” Liberty and democracy may go together in the West, he says, but they are not necessarily connected. Indeed, the curtailment of liberties may be popular and have the support of the majority of voters. He argues that, “democracy is flourishing; liberty is not.” This brings to mind the 19th-century liberal fear of a tyrannical majority and the subsequent intellectual effort to cordon individual freedom from majority opinion and decision-making. Democracy is fragile, its self-regulating mechanism is often sluggish, and it is highly vulnerable to breakdown during the lag between repressive action and an effective critical response. Zakaria argues that Russia is democratic but also illiberal, pointing to Vladimir Putin’s “superpresidency” and restrictions on the media. President Trump cannot actually be characterized as a Republican.  He is a populist leader who more accurately characterizes an adherence to illiberal Democracy. His policies were reversals of liberal, Enlightenment ideals that formed the basis of the representative democracy that governs the United States.   First, what are those Enlightenment or Age of Reason ideals that are the basis of US government?   Second, what is, according to Fareed Zakaria, an “Illiberal Democracy”?   Third, what has been happening in the United States with the Trump Administration that suggests the US was moving toward Illiberal Democracy?   Why are some Republicans refusing to acknowledge that Trump lost his bid for reelection?  Why is it important that former Republican president George W. Bush acknowledge and congratulate Joe Biden on winning election?   What role does science play in an Enlightenment influenced society?  We may, thanks to Pfizer without government funding, have a vaccine against COVID-19.  Why has science become politicized?  Did the lack of a coherent Trump Administration policy regarding masks harm his reelection chances?   Did the Trump administration’s unwillingness to address the concerns of Black Lives Matter harm their chances of reelection? UPDATE:  Use all of the articles found via the above links to answer these questions in your essay.  You must document your answers and discussions whenever directly quoting the article or paraphrasing material from them.  You are to parenthetically reference at the end of any sentence in which one of the articles is used.  You merely type (now that I’ve numbered them for you) the appropriate number for the source at the end of the sentence in which the source is used.  (#66)  [Okay, that’s an example.  There are NOT 66 articles.  But you see how it would be done in your paper.] UPDATE:  You must use ALL of the articles above in your paper.  Initially, I’d stated that you could bring in your own research in addition to the 11 required sources to use in your paper.  My recommendation now is that you NOT use additional sources in your paper.  You have a lot of reading to do with what you have presented here.  Just use that and your reflection and exposition on the topics raised.  That will be a difficult enough task.  It is one that, however, you can handle.  Doing outside research would take away from your time to read the material, digest it, and write about coherently.   Second, what is, according to Fareed Zakaria, an “Illiberal Democracy”?   Third, what has been happening in the United States with the Trump Administration that suggests the US was moving toward Illiberal Democracy?   Why are some Republicans refusing to acknowledge that Trump lost his bid for reelection?  Why is it important that former Republican president George W.
