The System Is Not Broken, We Are
In the months leading up to the November 2016 election, many of our Presidential candidates discussed a political system that was broken and it seemed people from both sides of the political spectrum vehemently agreed. We have undoubtedly become a more polarized nation than anytime in current history. These days people see each other in two categories, with them or against them and there is no mutual respect or understanding from either side.
It got me thinking, is our democracy really broken right now? A part of me realizes corporate money and interests have played a pivotal role for why people feel the system is broken. People feel the government doesn't care about them anymore instead politicians are vying to satisfy their own greedy interests. Furthermore, the two main political parties are in a stagnant gridlock it seems difficult to see any type of bipartisanship in the near future. It's easy to point the blame on the politicians claiming to be representing us but what about us? Does any of the blame lie with us? Personally, I think so and I think WE are the main culprits behind the system being broken.
