Are you new here, Don Durito? Welcome!

And what about them Justice Democrats / Green New Deal and whatnot? I was enthusiastic about them just out of principle, but are they actually demonstrating that a renewal of US democracy?

They are smart, they are lucid, and they are ... so far... uncontrollable. Ocasio Cortez certainly appears to scare the crap out of the Democratic establishment, so it will be interesting to observe how, and how successfully, they will try to crush them.

It will come down to campaign finance... Can the modern US variant of democracy be successfully crowd-funded?
