Is America truly a democratic republic today?
As Richard Falk said, "A political democracy that adopts a war policy without airing critical views in Congress and the media betrays its identity and does not deserve to be regarded as a democratic society." Have Americans succumbed to the Strauss political idology wherein it is acceptable to deceive the public in order to pass legislation since Big Brother knows better than the people?
No way, no how! Has not been that since the central bankers bought their first politician. We've got real problems now because undoing what's gone on this this country since WWI is not going to be pretty.
We are a unionist-leaning federal republic with global imperialistic tendencies due to a highly-unregulated captialistic economic system. We also have strong traditions of liberty and democracy laid over a culture of white religious fanatics, immigrants, former slaves, and conquered peoples (French, Spanish, and Natives). This liberty and democracy is currently countered by a neo-fascist movement bent on creating more laws and harsher punishments for offenders and a successful effort to control the minds and attitudes of citizens through corporate-controlled media outlets, church, and public education. The curbing of opinions and the greater law-and-order is again a result of the combination of unregulated capitalism, religious fanaticism, racism, and xenophobia. The control of attitudes and opinions negates the democratic aspects of the electoral system of the republic. Another economic collapse is expected.
Not in action it isn't. Protective measures may still exist if enough people wake up in time.
