Democracy in America

The 2016 election brought to the fore the underlying crises of American democracy; the bankruptcy of the Democratic Party in its current liberal, identity politics guise; the rise of the specter of white nationalism; the decline of American liberal democracy amidst the broader demise of the Western world order that has governed so autocratically for the past few centuries. The Sphere writes frequently on these themes.
