George Takei’s TED Talk at TEDxTokyo is all about his struggle to reconcile his experience of being raised in an American internment camp for citizens of Japanese descent, with what he was later taught about the ideals of American democracy. It’s a perfect video about the fallibilities of democracy, and the ultimately human solutions to those fallibilities.
