As we approach the Mid Terms this is a great question. There are many of us that are questioning the fact that democracy is slipping away in this country (please do not give me the republic crap for you know what I am writing about)…..
This is a good conversation that answers (tries to answer) the question presented in the title…..
With our democracy in free fall, many are terrified, but I’m convinced that there is one thing with the power to turn the tide.
And what is that?
At the risk of sounding corny, or even ridiculous, I believe the one force with the power we need now is “falling in love with democracy.” I know love can’t be forced, but I also know that to love we must first get acquainted. So, let’s ask, What, exactly, does democracy mean to us? Is it worthy of our devotion?
That’s the conversation I long for and offer these thoughts as an invitation.
For some, the answer’s easy: Democracy equals a market plus elections.
If you would like to add anything to the conversation please feel free to do so……chuq
