I looked into the study “Trust in Democracy” by the authors Roberto Heinrich and Jürgen Hofrichter of the Friedrich Ehrhard Foundation, a party-proxy foundation of the Social Democrats, to see where people are actually hurting and why satisfaction with how our government is run is so poor.
Trust in the media is plummeting to American levels. Only one in five thinks our parties are trustworthy although our constitution, unlike democratic constitutions, is designed to make us completely dependent on them and their leaders. The study asks participants about their suggestions to the problems and how they rank the conflicts of our time.
