Trump Is Just a Symptom — U.S. Democracy Is Diseased

This piece really suffers on account of its failure to acknowledge the role the Democratic Party played in shipwrecking American democracy. Both the Clinton and Obama Administrations were happy to sell out to the Wall Street neolibs and defense contractors — read how much $$$ the Clinton Foundation raked in from Lock-Mart — while reducing ‘progressivism’ to an identity-politics Punch-and-Judy show to dupe callow Millenials. Acting as if the rule of billionaires is something Trump just introduced is disingenuous (Ahem — Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin).

Trump is more of a desperation play to break the establishment’s stranglehold on our nation before it completely subsumes our democracy and utterly transforms our culture.
