In our Constitution, our democratic political system includes a division of responsibilities to enable a means of checks and balances. Each of the three branches of government is responsible for keeping the others in proper bounds.
In Capitalism, this authoritarian economic system has a division of power that despises checks and balances. And the oligarchs are working hard to grow their power to include a veto over the checks and balances of our political system through a Constitutional Convention.
Our authoritarian economic system needs democratization so we can save our democratic political system for the long-term.
