An interesting article about how democracy (even though still by far the best possible political system out there) seems to be failing us, as a society, be in it Greece with the ascent to power of a group of idiots, in the UK with the Brexiters, and in the US with the voters/fans of Trump and Hillary. Plato was the first one to see the inefficiencies and problems of democracy in his work the "Republic". Since then, despite all criticism, democracy has proven to be the best political system we have. Caleb Craln is doing a good job reviewing the past and the possible future of democracy in his article in the New Yorker: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/11/07/the-case-against-democracy
