you're not living in a democracy when Bezos can just buy a newspaper and use it as his personal mouth piece
FYI it's about this piece: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/02/18/fix-primaries-let-elites-decide/
They changed the title but the message is still the same: (In my opinion, it reads:) Let's stop pretending the Democratic party is democratic.
"A better primary system would empower elites to bargain and make decisions, instructed by voters."
"A process in which intermediate representatives — elected delegates who understand the priorities of their constituents — can bargain without being bound to specific candidates might actually produce nominees that better reflect what voters want."
Like that bargaining Hilary did to get a advantage over Bernie in which questions were asked?
@yogthos All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible.
