in response to reader comment: What Does It Take To Defend Democracy

As graphically demonstrated in the failed globally chilled relations unable to come to terms with the pretense of climatologically driven agendas, democracy had been placed under great strains to get a world-wide consensus that such climatological issues were sufficient to bring about any sense of common concern for the common good; it failed.
Part of the problem, if not the main defection, is the deflection of lesser industrialized nations (including the 'big' ones) seeing themselves as the offenders in the same way as those whose democracies gave capitalism an edge to exploit consumers' markets to excess; and these same lesser markets sought equality to build their own commercial viability on the shoulders of the democratic ones. Capitalism, not democracy, became the exchange tool by which they sought excuse of their climate offenses, pointing to the more advanced economies as the incentives of opportunities not yet realized and not wanting to cede such before achieving their own advantages. As seen as a capitulation to such economic inequalities, the 46th American Chief Executive chose to offer the American economy as the fatted calf, to be made subset to the false economies of China and Russia, all other lesser economies not contesting for fear of being called out as next in line. Capitalistic alliances fell; the new race for economic reality is already taking its toll and the chances for recovery to the old paradigm is hemorrhaging faster than the slit throat of the offered economies.
Here's the tell: there's a reason that the American economy was the best it has ever been and the envy that has trashed it has not replacement. Too bad those that caused it could not see their selfishness was going to be their downfall as well - kind of a democratic irony, isn't it?
