Wealth cannot = power in a democracy. It does here. Thus, this is not a democracy.

How to Build an Autocracy

The preconditions are present in the U.S. today. Here’s the playbook Donald Trump could use to set the country down a path toward illiberalism.

Replying to @MiraSorvino

Money moves to the top and the top use the money to buy political power so they can move more money to the top so they can buy more political power. The only way to break the cycle is to make it impossible to buy political power and there seems no will to do so because those with power do not want to prevent themselves from being able to buy power because they like having the ability to use their power to grab up more wealth. If they will not stop buying power with their money, then the people should act to take away their wealth.
