American democracy in the early 20’s is in a precarious state. Without Herculean vigilance, acuity, intrepidness and activism by a majoritarian movement and party, democracy will not persevere. Not even wearily. That is because one of our two viable political parties is not simply hidebound, but is atavistic, illiberal, reactionary, and in many cases shamelessly abuses political power, i.e., it is antidemocratic. Worse, they are doing so, with increasing frequency, in both authoritarian and totalitarian fashion. Sometimes even demonstrating a fascistic approach to establishing domestic hegemony. Of course that can only be the Republican party, which has been this way…
