Democracy will be toast

Vox reports:
Is American democracy in decline? Should we be worried?

On October 6, some of America’s top political scientists gathered at Yale University to answer these questions. And nearly everyone agreed: American democracy is eroding on multiple fronts — socially, culturally, and economically.

The scholars pointed to breakdowns in social cohesion (meaning citizens are more fragmented than ever), the rise of tribalism, the erosion of democratic norms such as a commitment to rule of law, and a loss of faith in the electoral and economic systems as clear signs of democratic erosion. ...

Yascha Mounk, a lecturer in government at Harvard University, summed it up well: “If current trends continue for another 20 or 30 years, democracy will be toast.”
This is a consequence of leftist identity politics and immigration.

Nobody believes in world democracy. Democracy only makes sense if you believe that your fellow man has similar interests. If we are going to admit millions of folks with completely different values, then they will eventually vote to destroy the USA as we know it. It does not make sense to let them all out-vote us.
