We’re being asked to watch out for signs our political, market and social leadership are thinking about threatening democracy.
In this case, by media historial Michael Beschloss:
OK. I’m on it. Let’s get started:
- Calls to abolish the electoral college, or otherwise make the government majoritarian – essentially voiding the contract that caused smaller-population states that put the “united” in “United States” in the first place.
- Answering calls to tie the Senate to the popular vote.
- Calls to to abolish the Supreme Court, “pack” it with people favorable to the current administration, or otherwise make it “follow public opinion”.
Let’s see to these, shall we?
