Sooner or later it will sink in that there is nothing democratic about anything democratic in America. This English word as spoken in the US has but a husk of meaning in any real sense. The reality is that the word has been debased through years of corruption and abuse by those in power and to the detriment of those wanting to be deceived. Moving forward we will need new words to capture the essence of things fondly remembered as democratic. Until then we live in a post democratic world where corruption, greed and plutocratic tyranny rule supreme.
