Still a book worth reading

To the editor:

The United States is, indeed, a republic and not a pure democracy. Having said that, it is the democratic principle of government of, by and for the people, underpinned by the concept that all people are created equal, that is the foundation of our country. Whether a country is a republic or a pure democracy, the erosion of that core principle is what matters.

Go to our excellent Person County Public Library and get How Democracies Die.

Read it, and don’t just dismiss it out of hand. it’s instructive and eye-opening, providing insights into how our country can stop the erosion.
