“While opposition to democracy used to be confined to people who felt marginalized and had little influence, it is now spreading even among the economic elite.”
Troubling headline but perhaps I can’t necessarily disagree with the sentiment. Remember the Romans:
By 53 B.C., factions in the Senate had paralyzed the Roman government. The annual consul election degenerated into a contest of who could bribe the most voters. Street riots erupted. In a desperate move to restore order, the assembly elected General Gnaeus Pompey to serve as sole consul for a year.
“History doesn’t repeat but it often rhymes.”
