Peer-reviewed Research into Oligarchy

In the fall of 2014, the academic journal Perspectives on Politics published Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens, the first academic study of whether the US was a de facto democracy - i.e. whether the will of the people influenced whether legislation got enacted.[1] It began by asking "Who governs? Who really rules? To what extent is the broad body of U.S. citizens sovereign, semi-sovereign, or largely powerless?" and concluded that "Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts."[2] This was not followed up on by commercially-controlled media and as of December 2017, it was still the only paper on this topic.[3]

It is relevant to the Wikispooks project for its thought provoking articles on contemporary geo-politics and culture, especially concerning the absurd but still rigidly enforced official narrative of World War II as 'The Good war'.
