Will Ferrell’s Socrates Tells Sarah Silverman What’s Wrong With America

Will Ferrell, dressed as the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates, stopped by Sarah Silverman’s Hulu show “I Love You, America” to debate democracy.

“Democracy is only as effective as the educational system that surrounds it,” he added.
