Ideally, a governing system would be able to be replaced (or go out of business) easily. The genius of democracy was that it was supposed to allow the government to be replaced simply.
The reality of democracy is that it leads to a system in which the government cannot be replaced. Instead citizens are given the illusion of replacement, while the governing structure remains. Even after a momentous elections, only a small fraction of one percent of government employees are replaced. This is why solutions like repealing the 16th Amendment and re-operationalizing the 9th and 10th Amendments won’t work. Ultimately the problem – democracy – remains untouched. Change of governance would still be effectively impossible.
We should be seeking a system that allows for dramatic shifts in governance peacefully. This is why I support the free market solution to governance – companies dramatically change directions all the time, governments don’t seem to be able to without spilling blood.
