Democracy is a weak instrument when one seeks to engage in revolutionary politics. In almost all cases where a ruling elite is driven from power, a massive societal collapse is needed. Have people line up at soup kitchens, or suffer under hyperinflation (as occured in the Weimar republic) and people will overnight lose their conditioning and listen to even the most extreme voices. For so long as the US has a functional economy folks will continue to vote for the status quo. Until then people like Patrick Little will only ever appeal to the fringes of society. His message was not only too radical, but also one dimensional.
