"Does Joe Biden really get what his challenge is?"
His job was to win an election. He did that. But he did not win by much. Had Ms. Warren or Mr. Sanders been on the ballot, Mr. Trump just still might be in charge.
Mr. Biden is hobbled by a partisan Senate and Supreme Court. His party is fractured to the point where a Trump or Trump clone will be a viable condender in 2024. To suggest that he somehow can go in the direction Umair and other Medium writers want him to go is extremely naive.
The USA got to this position because the American political system is broken. It put someone like Mr. Trump into the position of a viable conteder in 2016. And despite four years of incompetence, 12m more Americans voted for him than last time. What other signs do we need to prove a broken system?
No one can fix this system. Even hourly article by Umair will not fix this system. THIS SYSTEM HAS TO GO.
People who really understand how broken the system is need to get off their butt and build a new kind of democracy. And that means more than voting once every four years and attending some protest marches. If one is content with this level of democratic participation, then we will get the future we deserve.
Tiered Democratic Governance calls on all Umair readers to invest 10 hours a month building this new democracy.
