It should be especially unsettling to young voters that in America, rule by the people has been replaced by rule according to Special Interests and Lobbys. These groups, in turn, have become so intrenched that their leadership is subject to a stratifying layer of corrupt influences. When each special interest group begins scratching the backs of the others for the sake of political alliance we completely lose accountability to the people. The people become dependant on the group, rather than the group leadership simply being representative of the people.

To address corruption of government representation, we would also be requiring a major overhaul of these special interest machinations. If you understand the challenges and risks associated with such an endeavor, you may begin to understand why any pressure to return to civil nobility in government representation is largely ignored.
