For decades American leaders have decried the need for Democracy around the world, but there are far too many examples of American leadership renouncing democratically elected leaders around the world for American leaders claims of a necessity for more democracy to be credible.
And, here in America, the fight to convict or inhibit Trump's ability to run for office before the 2024 presidential is more of an indictment against the idea of an America has a Democracy than it indicates a function one.
When a study shows that America is an oligarchy and few (if any) Americans show any concern about this allegation, fewer still demand further investigation into this possibility and almost none of the main stream media explores or investigates it, the following questionust be asked.
"Can a Democracy truly exist if those governed by it ignore it?"
In other words, can a Democracy truly exist if only a minority are paying attention to how it functions? Can you have a Democracy in which a small sector of the Society governed by it benefit while the majority flounder and slip below the poverty line?
And lastly, does the idea of forcing your brand of Democracy on another country truly fit within the scope that defines Democracy? "Forced Democracy" which is what America has historically pushed around the world seems to be more an oxymoron than anything else.
In 2018, I wrote a book highlighting the problems Humanity would face if more power, wealth, and control was funneled to a small group of elite individuals, groups, or organizations. In my book, I provided solutions (from myself and others) to the inevitable problems and also a means for the Public to analyze, compare, and contrast the words and deeds of those we choose to follow against reality. In my book Solutions: Enough complaining. Let's fix America.
In "Solutions...", I provide the means for readers to disseminate information as provided by their news sources of choice, their elected officials, and any other authority they choose to follow. The book also offers a means to hold their leaders up, not just to a higher standard than is currently accepted but to one that would improve their lives and the lives of those for whom they care.
