Democracy has lost its way and its essence. In many supposed democracies around the world, this has either completely changed, or is changing right before our eyes. And an increasingly disillusioned electorate seems to welcome it. Voter turn-out is the lowest it has been around the world in a generation. Voters have lost faith in politicians and are turning to demagogues. Donald Trump — and the things he represents — is no outlier.

Just look to the UK, where a populist party helped drag the country out of the European Union, and dragged the global economy down with it.

Farewell Sir Tom Finney, a man valued for deed not greed | The Independent
Is it any wonder voter confidence is falling as fast as turnout? The less we trust our political elite, the more likely we are to take a gamble on one of these demagogues. After all, can a fear-monger be any worse than the cronyism and lies democracy has become? Democracy was built on the power and needs of the people. It has since sold out to money. And that, experts agree, is the biggest threat to it today. If the corruptive influence of money has left voter in the West disenchanted, it has been even more damaging in Africa.
Take Nigeria. Hundreds of millions of dollars have already been seized from politicians and public officials who served under the previous government, and millions — even billions — more remain to be recovered. Citizens are disgruntled and democracy no longer looks as promising as it did in , when the military handed over to a democratically elected president. President Robert Mugabe might claim to have popular support, but regular protests against his government suggests otherwise.
