The US is an oligarchy, a study finds

https://www.commondreams.org/view/2014/04/14

A Princeton/Northwestern study (direct link) finds the States are no longer a democracy but rather an oligarchy, where the opinion of the majority doesn't really affect policies, which are instead shaped by the preferences of the moneyed elites. Of course any sane person will have suspected this for quite a while; even so, this is sad and has far-reaching implications.
