To prove that he was better at governance, Khan had to be better than the traditional parties. Advisory councils of randomly chosen citizens cannot replace elections, nor should they.
Fukuyma went to a predominantly Jewish, strongly left-leaning private school in the Bronx, Riverdale Country Day. The fourth book is by. Many community-owned businesses have vanished.
Democracy thus threatens to sap its own foundation, since a sovereign free to do as it pleases—even to the point of tampering with the rules of the Democracy andits discontents system by gerrymandering districts and disqualifying potential voters, appointing biased judges, and silencing critics of its policies—cannot hope to win the acquiescence of the defeated minority.

This is caused by the extreme decentralization of the electoral system, while at the same time, those supervising elections are elected or appointed by a partisan official. Now that the center is panicking, the left senses an opening. Levitsky and Ziblatt take an admirably comparative approach, but their primary concern is with the fate of American democracy in light of what has happened elsewhere.

Liberal democracy has always offered the best promise to do that; but at the moment, the democracy component is further up the steps to the gallows.
Is the country moving forward and what are the democracy dividends? does not necessarily diminish with the achievement of greater de facto equality and material abundance, but may actually be stimulated by it.
