Obama warns that Trump’s actions threaten US democracy : worldnews

Let the powerful see that the root cause is the insufficiency of representative democracy. It can and is being subjugated.

Obama pitched change, without addressing that root cause. He showed us our hope was not power.

In our powerlessness we turned to Trump, but he didn’t drain the swamp. He gave us a cynical zero sum. He sells us the narrative that the world is run by the already powerful and we should fall in line or suffer.

And now tribes against trump is expected to be enough to put the cat back in the bag?

The platform must be direct democracy. Give us a direct electronic expression of our will. Empower us. For the species that we can become. Anything less will not be enough.
