Could American democracy be on its last legs?

In my latest editorial for CGTN, I examine why last January’s insurrection at the Capitol laid the foundation for the potential crushing of democracy in the U.S.

People all over the world would be making a huge mistake in thinking America’s democracy is so deeply rooted into the fabric of the country that it could never disappear. Democracy – like any institution – survives because the people governed by it want it to continue. Failure to nourish and protect it will lead to its demise.
