We must live in current times with two contradictory realities. The first is that the state of our democracy is dire. And the second is that we have only what is left of our democracy to get us out of the bind that we are in. The first reality is enough to make one despair, and the second demands that we not shrink from the challenge. Democracy is not a self-righting enterprise. It demands our active involvement. Voting for the right person or party is not enough. The alternative is to have tyranny close in on us even more.
