In the US the political parties seek to govern. The American people aren’t really aware of this. They don’t think of themselves as electing the parties. But the GOP thinks exactly that. One can put whatever bogeyman one wants behind the GOP but the GOP is dedicated to the preservation and spread of inequity. Almost every bad thing that has happened to the country in the last 100 years has been the result of the GOP and the people and ideology behind it. Much, if not a majority of what is presently wrong in the world is either directly a result of this organization or linked to it.
It can be taken down with the technology of transparency. Despite constantly being told that major parties pitch to the center and tell the public what it wants to hear the GOP could never stand the public’s awareness of its actual value set and goals. It won’t survive greater awareness of its past deeds. Its greatest weakness is that its actual voter base will never actually share its goal no matter how much seeding its done because it involves their own severe oppression. Also with its federal center of gravity is a high centralized entity that can come down with great rapidity.
To bar a stand in for the GOP we will also need to rid the US system of parties. Madison’s original fears
about parties have proven to be well founded.
