    The people are too apathetic to exercise their power. Maybe voting should be made compulsory.
    compulsory voting doesn't solve the problem of voter apathy.

    Earlier you said corporations drive policy, now you're saying public opinion does. Which is it?
    It's both, of course. Do you like having a democratic system or not? Because, the point is, that you seem to want to throw the baby out with the bath water. And it's not going to happen anyway. Americans (people) are never going to say, "it turns out we're too stupid after all, so please make all out decisions for us" despite the fact that that's the way they basically do it anyway.

    History teaches us that, when our economy is in terrible shape after protracted war--especially when we're worried about inflation--we ought to trust an Austrian to solve all our problems for us.
