Letter to the editor: Sure signs that democracy is at risk in America today

Democracy dies when:

  • We forget that constitutional democracy’s most important goal is to protect minorities, not help majorities
  • Demonstrators have time to march in the streets but fail to show up to vote
  • Those who wish to vote cannot because they face difficult and unreasonable rules
  • When big corporations “rent” workers as commodities rather than hire as employees with health and retirement benefits
  • Violent demonstrators destroy the rule of law as they attempt to gain the rule of law for themselves
  • Regardless of who is in power, the nation’s wealth goes to fewer and fewer individuals
  • When factual news reporting is rendered questionable by nonsupported charges of fake news
