Yes, this is one of the reasons why I am less concerned about the tyranny of the majority being an issue in the USA: the powers of the higher-ups are so much more powerful that at this point we are a corporate oligarchy. Yet it is possible I believe WITHIN the framework of the Constitution to use our democratic elements to return some of the power to people using our existing systems. It’s likely there ARE better systems than the US Constitution. However, any discussion of removing and replacing it I think needs to be taken with great great care. I don’t indulge in that speculation because I don’t think it is fruitful; the power of the Constitution has shown itself to be useful for as long as the country has been here. Do I like the slowness of our systems? Not always. But I would worry about a nimble and agile system if a chaotic element was in charge. Something needs to absorb the shock and we have that.
