Illegitimate government

I found this essay in Daily Kos to be illuminating. It sets out in very simple words what is happening in American politics, although the same things threaten in the rest of the world, for example Australia, Turkey, now Brazil.

Briefly, a scholar in governance defines legitimacy in government, and shows how the ruling Republican Party has violated every one of the criteria.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
