Why democracy is failing
The two famous comments about democracy in the last century were made, respectively, by America’s 28th president, Woodrow Wilson, and by Winston Churchill.

After all, Wilson had backdoored us into a world war he promised to avoid and had thrown those who protested the war into prison under an unconstitutional sedition act.

But that all changed the day I started working in clothing retail.
