We’re # 1
Headline: “The destruction of India’s judicial independence is almost complete.” If, as it appears to be, that’s the case, India can no longer be considered to be the world’s largest democracy. That means we’re #1! Yippee! Except if Trump is still in the White House after inauguration day next January, Indonesia will become #1, if it qualifies, or if not, maybe Mexico, if it qualifies. Safest bet for #1 would probably be Japan, whose democracy was born in the U.S.A.
