Civic action

Democracies also do not go around scrapping their Constitutions. They amend them. They reform their societies through civic action and passing laws to address injustices in society. And civic action is much more than marching and protesting all the time. It is organizing at community levels to resolve problems before they fester and escalate. I think this happens to some degree in rural communities. What is missing is a mobilized middle and upper class that reach out and partner with each other and the poor.
