In the center of public activity in USA is not politics (which comes from the Greek word Polis) but the economy (which comes from the Greek word Oikos). So Americans treat the private (Oikos) as if it were public thing and the public (Polis) as if it were private.
The ancient Greeks, in turn, only dealt with the economy (Oikos) in the recess of the home. At the meeting they took care of the city (Polis). The only conclusion we can reach is that American Democracy has no resemblance to the Greek Democracy. In fact the USA is a Oikoscracy.
