Who’s in charge of the place anyhow?
In response to the publication of an academic study that essentially proves the United States is nothing more than an oligarchy, many commentators have quipped sentiments that go something like “so tell me something I don’t know.” While I agree that the conclusion is far from surprising to anyone paying attention, the study is significant for two main reasons.
Well, at least this suggests someone is in charge, but how long can that really last? Who’s to say what will happen when it all flies out of control??
