For quite some time now, people have been leaving rural areas in droves and going to... densely populated areas.

Very good research. Small dense population areas cannot be allowed to control the whole country. That is like creating a dictatorship. The people in these highly populated areas do not even produce a fraction of their foods they consume. Our system of the electoral college tries to balance this, and even though it is not perfect, it does keep a few big cities from enslaving the rest of the nation.

The lesson here is we are not a country that believes in voter equality.
That basically the idea we're selling?

"America is not and has never been a true democracy, and in fact a true democracy would never work in America"
That's because the notion of the democratic process is a lie, just like freewill, its an illusion of sorts, designed to keep the people happy by allowing them to surmise they actually have a hand in the decision making process.
Which they don't, never have had, and probobly never will.
This world belong to the bankers and there political puppets, and its been that way since the beginning.
