America is not a centuries old democracy. It’s a centuries old white supremacist hellhole that briefly moved towards democracy in the 1960s. Now it’s just regressing to the mean.

Not A Centuries Old Democracy

I grew up in America, pledging allegiance to the flag, and I understand how this is confusing to Americans, but America was not and really is not a democracy. I’ll let Alexander Keyssar explain:

The Right to Vote: the Contested History of Democracy in the United States:

America was founded by a bunch of rich, white assholes who didn’t want to pay taxes and so it largely remains. At founding only white men with land could vote, a fraction of the population. Many of them actually owned, raped, tortured, and killed other human beings. They sold babies, sometimes their own babies. Very fucked up.

America actually got universal suffrage after most modern democracies, including places like Sri Lanka, and it’s still pretty shit. Voting in America is still widely restricted (suppression plus just caging people and taking their civic rights)…
