Hi Sylvain. Thank you for your excellent piece on issues threatening our democracy. The Founding Fathers did not design our system for the society we would become. Southern politicians were (as they are today) emboldened by the electoral college and senate rules. Sparsely populated regions and states whose residents don't share beliefs, culture, and expectations of most Americans actively thwart the will of the majority. Our democracy is minority rule through the electoral college.*

Thank you for a great article!
