There was an interesting new post on the subject of minority rule by lecturer in history and international studies at the Netherlands’ Leiden University Andrew Gawthorpe and published at Guardian News. Take a look at this excerpt:
The Democrats’ victory in the Georgia Senate races cements their control over America’s most important governing institutions. In deciding what to do with their newfound power, they should learn from those who won this victory – the tireless organizers, many of them Black women, who made sure that Georgians were registered, motivated and able to vote. They know how to turn this country’s true Silent Majority – the one which rejects Republicans in election after election, including in 2016 – into a governing majority. What they did for Georgia, national Democratic leaders must now do for America.
The case for the Democratic Party to commit itself to a radical pro-democracy agenda is simple. The last four years have shown the horrors of minority rule.
