Quora answer: In the past 100 years, Europe has produced several dictators (Hitler, Mussolini, Milosevic) while the USA has not produced one. Why?
I don’t think we should congratulate ourselves yet. Every original democracy has fallen into tyranny except ours. I think instead we should work hard to preserve what we have, and recognize that the new threat is Corporatism, i.e. corporations considered as persons with equal rights as humans who are citizens. If our Senators and Congressmen serve them rather than the human citizens, and they are allowed full citizenship, then a new kind of tyranny will destroy our democracy. I think I heard President Obama warn us of this danger in his state of the Union address.
