What Happens When Corruption Is Systemic
Joe Brewer

While I believe you are right on every point, there is an inherent flaw in your advocacy. The power to change anything is in the hands of those few who do hold all the wealth and power. It would not behoove them to change things, so they won’t. Look at the DNC race. Moderate Clinton has party support and the vast majority of super delegates pledged by the DNC. Sanders has the democratic popular vote by a landslide, but he has very few super delegates and no party support. The reason is simple, Sander’s ideas are economically radical and would hurt those who hold the purse strings. It is a sad truth, but a truth none the less. Democracy is of little value under the status quo, and too few are voting for the one candidate promoting radical change and far too few are going out and getting involved in local city and state politics so that they can change things from the bottom up to provide a radical president with some legislative support someday. So while I applaud your concept, I am afraid your advocacy is too idealistic.
