By Letter to the Editor on September 17, 2020.
With both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris considered to be moderate candidates by the Democratic party establishment, their election will almost certainly translate into a governance with thinly veiled, yet firm ties to corporate interests and little or no genuine intention of adequately improving the poor person’s lot in life.
To me, Western democracy elected heads of state appear confined to being but symbolically in charge, second to the greatest power-entrenched big-money interests.
It may be reflective of why the latter generally resist proportional representation electoral systems of governance.
