I don’t disagree with everything here, but here’s some food for thought for anyone who cares: (1) Is the problem too much or too little democracy? H seems to imply that there is too much, but then also implies that a handful of elites have too much power. (2) The professional political actions of a professional politician are of far more importance to the practice of actual governing than their (sometimes admittedly sordid) personal lives. (3) Human beings are not things. Is it moral to apply “the law of supply and demand” to the needs of human beings in exactly the same way we would to Ipads?
