Clinton needs to energize the dormant better angels in our society and those disillusioned and left out, and enlist their energy in a vision for a country closer to our ideals. End poverty. Education for all our children. Wipe out discrimination.

We’ve drifted to plutocracy. Unless President Clinton faces it and presents a desirable alternative he, too, will fail, and if he does, the cost to this government, the country, and its people will be absolutely enormous. We’ve dismantled so much of our government and government-related efforts to provide necessities for society that unless he acts we can’t hold back the miseries.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?
