Threats to Democracy

Seems pretty axiomatic. If, as I believe to be true, one of the chief hallmarks of democratic governance is the peaceful transition of power-- the losers leave and the winners take over-- we have had our warning knell. Our system is potentially already fatally wounded. We shall see, and we will find out in the relatively near future. As Bill Moyers says, those of us who care about the continuance of whatever degree of democracy we have had better be prepared to fight. Not violently, but fiercely. Because the risk that all will be lost is very, very real. We have to keep this forefront in mind.
