In this episode of the C-Realm Radio show on WOOL, 91.5 FM in Bellows Falls, Vermont, Doug, JHK and KMO revisit that topic and touch on several others, including the prospects for the DNC Primary contest for the 2020 election.

It is election day, 2018. Political and partisan tensions are high, and voter turnout looks to be high as well. In this episode, KMO shares conversations with Vermont's Lt. Governor, David Zuckerman, libertarian writer Joshua D. Glawson, and political commentator Steve Lamb. KMO also riffs on ideas lifted from the writing of Caitlan Johnstone and Yuval Noah Harari to consider the idea that Democracy's limitations are not necessarily flaws.
