This piece might also be entitled, "Democracy for Dummies", because after so many decades of indoctrination by the One Percent's mainstream media and schools, many ordinary Americans think democracy is voting in elections managed by the One Percent. The only criticism I have about this article is that a reader could easily infer that we have political democracy in the US.
When we talk about “democracy,” inevitably, it seems, the discussion is about political democracy. Rarely is there discussion about economic democracy. Democracy stops at the entrance to the workplace.
