@thomasfuchs it’s weird that everyone at vox is both repugnant and stupid while so many people at the other vox site, sbnation, are good and smart even about politics

@thomasfuchs the headline is true though. When reading US comments it seems as they believe that the opposite of democracy is some kind of freedomless hellscape where people suffer daily from just existing in that society.

The fact is that quality of life seems to be orthogonal to the type of government

"The fantasy of authoritarianism distracts Americans from the mundane ways in which the mechanisms of political competition and checks and balances can erode."
