Bill Moyers echoes Americans Struggle for Democracy

In this insightful commentary, Bill Moyers states that plutocracy, the rule of the rich, has usurped American democracy, through a system of favorable market governments or marriage of money and democracy: plutocracy. See any parallels with the market friendly Harper conservative government? Is the Harper government favorable to big business or the people?

The underlying flaw of the western political systems is that the majority of elected officials write the electoral laws of their own electoral game. This blatant self-serving conflict of interest is a main cause of the demise of western democracies. The FDA recommends that non-partisan elected citizen bodies create the election laws.
