Dear _________, Congratulations! You have reached the last level of the hit internet game “Democracy.” Levels completed (from easiest to most difficult): i) Rejection of “elites” in politics. This year’s election will be all about how untalented and quotidian your candidate is. Take care that they do not use words like “quotidian.” ii) Rejection of “elites” in culture. As many people have pointed out, both students and real people have decided (or you have decided for them—but don’t try to think that through) that if something’s hard, it can’t be entertaining or interesting. iii) Re-institution of mob justice. It’s great that that bad white man will fry for killing that poor black kid, just as nice as it was when those bad black men were hung for raping those poor white women. Good job! Keep spreading democracy.
