I like the "final" solution of this writer.
But here the question we be asking: "How did we get to a position where mail carriers are surreptitiously providing postage so that ballots can reach their destination?"
If this mail carrier is thinking outside the box, maybe we should be thinking outside the box of western democracy, especially the American version.
Tiered Democratic Governance starts with 1% of American spending about 10 hours a month to build a new democracy. If a mail carrier is sacrificing $100 and engaging in some clandestine democratic action, he/she just might want to be is that 1%.
