Heading Into Possible Post-Democracy

The link below is from a recent article in New York Magazine.  It closely reflects my own thinking about the state of politics in North America and the downward slide we have set ourselves up for, from uber democracy to tyranny.  The only thing I would add to the article is that I believe the writer has not sufficiently acknowledged the part previous US presidents with their warring ways have played in paving the way for presidential candidates such as Donald Trump.  In my opinion Mr. Trump would have had no chance of making it this far in a presidential race without the particular predecessors in that office over the past two or three decades. Attempting to eradicate all discernable differences between people in the name of political correctness does not ultimately lead to a marvellous utopia, but to a confused people ripe for a possible violence proposing dictatorial leader.
