My summary of Thomas Friedman

Thomas Friedman has a post about the ongoing government shutdown. I took the liberty of composing a summary:
"This time is different. The future of how we govern ourselves is at stake. Structural changes have reached a tipping point. When extremists do not play by the traditional rules, our democracy is imperiled. Republicans are saying 'give me the money and nobody gets hurt.' How did we get here? By creating republican districts in an alternative universe. In Citizen’s United, Sheldon Adelson created his own alternative universe. Republican media is a gravity-free zone. Structural changes aren't going away."
