We have Trump representing the angry, but not representing why they are angry. The Democrats represent the professional class who caused the problems for three or four decades (actually post WW2) but do no represent a new way that prevents the problems caused by neo-liberals (think Clintons).
The results: few represent the country, the species, the globe, American democracy. For years we knew of the ghettos, the declining income of the poor, the growing militarism, the exploitation of the poor in emergent economies, the decline in education and rising crazy costs. But our kids would be ok. OK? No. We must do better.
