We Took Democracy for Granted

The sentiment you professed here is true, of course — namely that American Democracy was already under severe threat due to deep-seeded corruption disguised as Free Market Capitalism, Lobbying and Big Donor Campaign Donations.

It’s just that the U.S. has gone from corrupt Presidents [basically: everybody since Reagan, possibly though not likely since Carter] to a Fascist President in Trump. And while corruption is certainly a threat to Democracy, Fascists [again, like Trump] seek to outright destroy it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
