But it will continue to support dictators in the region as long as oil supplies for allies are at stake. The electric car and the decline of petroleum may be an impetus to democracy, as states lose their overwhelming superiority over society. Washington, D.C. will be irrelevant to those developments. And with the turn to an open embrace of fascism by a majority of the Republican Party, America’s own democracy is walking a tightrope at fifty stories in a high wind with no net.
