The next President of the USA

Democratic process does not exist, but not only in the US or autocratic countries, it is not existing in Europe either. It has been hollowed out by neoliberalism which is destroying social cohesion.
Brussels acts if their processes are democratic, but they are not. An agenda is followed according to a central plan, written by a central planning bureau which sets the sails to a destination by which the end justifies the means. In the US, Chris Hedges points out that Sheldon Wolin's book 'Democracy Incorporated' warns us of a new and insidious way of autocratic despotism which he calls: 'Inverted Totalitarianism.' This is something to worry about I believe because while we are entertained by music video's, a neverending number of TV series, movies or gadgets, we simply cannot find the time to really look what is going on. We believe Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton despite the facts that they are lying to us and would do anything to become the leader of the free world. Which free world? There is no free world and neither is there a free market. The media (entertainment) makes us believe all's well, but look a bit closer and you can see how deep the rabbit hole is.
