What is democracy?

From the Left, A Life in the Crossfire by Bill Press published in 2018.

“Democracy, after all, is not something invented once and for all in 1776 and put on the shelf to collect dust for the next 250 years. Democracy is always in the process of creation. Each generation in turn gets to create its own version of democracy, the kind of democracy it wants to live in. And now’s our turn: to expand opportunities, to break down barriers, and to make sure all Americans enjoy the same basic freedoms in pursuit of the American dream. We do that through the political system. That’s why politics is so important. And that’s why we can never walk away from it.”

Trump must go
