Of course many would argue that this thread should go in our Health section (under mental health) or in our Entertainment section - and I wouldn't suggest they were wrong.
PERFECT END TO DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY: ANONYMOUS SUPERDELEGATES DECLARE WINNER THROUGH MEDIA
Glenn Greenwald — June 7
"It's only fitting that the Democrats' process ends with such an ignominious, awkward, and undemocratic sputter.
"This is the perfect symbolic ending to the Democratic Party primary: The nomination is consecrated by a media organization, on a day when nobody voted, based on secret discussions with anonymous establishment insiders and donors whose identities the media organization — incredibly — conceals. The decisive edifice of superdelegates is itself anti-democratic and inherently corrupt: designed to prevent actual voters from making choices that the party establishment dislikes. But for a party run by insiders and funded by corporate interests, it’s only fitting that its nomination process ends with such an ignominious, awkward, and undemocratic sputter."
Nothing will change. Eight years since the nomination of Obama--and after his nearly two complete terms in the White House-- Americans, many of whom are said to be thoroughly disgusted by U.S. politics as usual, have learned nothing.
Offered a clear alternative to politics as usual, they've chosen--if we can trust the ballot returns--to remain mired in it.
This is at once both a stunning demonstration of the failure of the U.S. order to afford the public a democratic means of working their will and the demonstration of the undisturbed continuation of that corrupt political order.
i'd like to be able to say it this well, but he's nailed DaDonald on this one.
