Should Democracy Be Fixed?



There is a strong tendency to accept that “democracy,” however defined, is “broken. It then follows that things that are broken, need to be fixed, so let’s throw out some proposals to “fix” Democracy.

Before we head off in the direction of fixing it shouldn’t we ask the question as to how to know if an institution, such as “Democracy’ is in fact broken?

What exactly was/is the US Mission in Niger? In the recent events there, four US Soldiers were lost and literally, nothing about the death of US Troops in a godforsaken third-world s**thole has made any sense whatsoever. Were they there to “train” or “advise” local troops in their battle against ISIS? Or was the mission more “hands on” and not what Congress believes that it had authorized by not declaring war?
