In his latest call to arms, Philip Kotler passionately argues that democracy is under grave threat. Too much money has entered politics, and its donors, often billionaires and corporations, now hold too much influence in favor of the 1%. Meanwhile, the voting system is flawed, too few citizens are politically informed, and many don’t vote.
