Who, the People?

We the People

 

News Headline: “The U.S. is not a democracy but an oligarchy, study concludes.”
B.R., a Chicago reader, writes:
“Oligarchy? Isn’t the better word plutocracy?”
Neither word.
We live in a nation where the wealthiest few increasingly run the show and engage in many corrupt practices, which they largely get away with.
This is because we, the people, have repeatedly voted in ways that allow this to happen.
So we’re talking about a vibrant democracy.
