The GOP Has Ditched Democracy
Douglas Rushkoff

People are perfectly capable of self-government. You can not discuss the failings of American democracy without discussing the source of those failings: money. It is the handful of people and orgsnizations with most of the money that subvert democracy through the deception you describe, but mostly through supressing policy at the major party level that would ultimately involve the redistribution of wealth, and cutting military funding. These remain two things the modern democratic party establishment remains loathe to discuss, owned as it is by corporate interests.
