Democracy, the rule of the people, cannot function as an aggregation of consumerist desires. It has to function as the frame to a culture where the conversations and interactions of people have power and ultimately lead to decisions and leadership choices reflective of those conversations.

People are no longer people, from the standpoint of our former democracy. Money is now people. Citizens United (best Orwellian name ever) saw to that. Republican congress is just a collection of special interest puppets. It is probably impossible to unwind this now. Let’s face it, our democracy is dead.
