Nice article. I like the toast and butter analogy. The only critique I would have is that it is too focused on Trump and the Republicans when it comes to analyzing the state of democracy in the US.
You say, “Popular will be damned” and then just make a comment about Republicans. I propose the Democrats are as much to blame with the lack of democracy.
Look at what the majority of people want: universal healthcare, stricter gun control, higher minimum wage, higher taxes on rich and corporations, less-expensive higher education, cut the military budget, less intervention overseas, etc. Do we get any of this?
We don’t have democracy in the US and the Democrats are as much to blame.
