for obvious reasons corporate lobbyists can't control a direct civic democracy as they control a representative democracy, a government dominated by wealthy highly educated elites are not a democracy, Representative Democracy or Constitutional Republic does not make sense if it does not provide a Democratic civic form of government, then they are false label institutions, if the Constitution does not provide a Democratic civic form of government it should be amended or rewritten by a Constitutional Convention, the Constitution is not a Holy document, it is not the Bible, how should the demand for skilled labor ever be met if taxes never can be raised and only always lowered, how can quality higher education be made affordable.
This is supposed to be a Constitutional Republic not a Democracy 
There are different forms of democracy. In this country, "democracy" is colloquially referring to what is actually representative democracy (the type of democracy employed by our government in the US, which is *far* from an actual participatory democracy, which Leibowitz is talking about). In other words, spend 10 minutes on Wikipedia, please. Declaring that democracy = representative democracy = participatory democracy is pure ignorance. Actually, I'd call it stupidity. What the hell, afreijat?
