Yay Us! Oh, wait.

Scissorhead Jimmy-T alerts us:

The US became a ‘backsliding democracy’ in 2020 and ‘fell victim to authoritarian tendencies’: report

  • The US was dubbed a “backsliding democracy” for the first time in an annual report.
  • The International IDEA’s report, which looked at trends across 2020 to 2021, said that the US “fell victim to authoritarian tendencies.”
  • The report warned that Trump’s effort to overturn the election had “spillover effects” in other countries.

The US was listed as a “backsliding democracy” for the first time in an annual report on the state of global democracy from the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, a Stockholm-based organization.

So we got that workin’ for us.

    Jeepers! I bet this will catch the attention of each and every anti-democratic “bad actor” and shock them onto the straight and narrow. So help them, James Madison!

    Is that a backsliding democracy or a developing dictatorship?

    Are we “backsliding” or do we just like to get spanked with a Forbs magazine?

    The Financial Times also has one of those democracy indexes.
    They chucked the US out of the Full Democracy category in 2016 (cut off is averaging 8 points across all categories) into the Flawed Democracy category. Dropping from the 20th place, in 2016) to the 25th spot (in 2020).
