August 14, 2016 - Democracy

You face the incessant reference to being a democractic nation regardless of what western nation you are part of. There is a problem with this.

It's a lie.

Think about it. Whether it's abortion, vaccination, the LDBT issue, guns, GMO, whatever, has the majority's wishes been honoured?

If we had a democracy how is it the 1.7% of the population has more sway than the remaining population? Granted, there may be those who don't object to or even support the opinion of the 1.7% but I can't believe it represents a majority.

Actually, democracy sucks.

When is it right that two wolves and a lamb can vote to determine what's for supper? Gang rape is a democratic process is it not?

Democracy is just an ideology that allows those who can influence public opinion to press their opinion on the public.

"If Voting Made Any Difference, They Wouldn’t Let Us Do It.

"Don’t be fooled into thinking that the only road to reform is through the ballot box. Whether you vote or don’t vote doesn’t really matter. What matters is what else you’re doing to push back against government incompetence, abuse, corruption, graft, fraud and cronyism. After all, argues John W. Whitehead, there is more to citizenship than the act of voting for someone who, once elected, will march in lockstep with the dictates of the powers-that-be." John W. Whitehead
