The #LyingPress is adamant that American democracy is the best, the greatest, the most wonderful system of government on earth!
Hmm, I wonder why.
Why do you think the #LyingPress is War-on-Womening us to death with all these aggrieved bimbos of 10, 20, 30 years ago? Why is everything so “racist” these days up to and including math? Could it be a cynical political strategy calculated to demographically mold the electorate into a certain form to gain power?
They clutch their pearls and wag their fingers and say, you’re so bad Donald Trump, you have contempt for democracy!
“Donald Trump turned, in the third and final presidential debate, from insulting the intelligence of the American voter to insulting American democracy itself. He falsely insisted there were “millions of people” registered to participate in the election who did not have the right to vote and declared he would not commit to honoring the outcome.”
What are we supposed to do here?
Are we supposed to get up on our hind legs and jump up into the air with our pom-poms like the #TruCons every time the #LyingPress chortles that the White electorate has declined by another 4 percent since the last election? We’re being demographically transformed into a Third World country by a corrupt and degenerate oligarchy.
Wives voting against their husbands. Children voting against their fathers. Foreigners voting against citizens. Men transitioning into women. Women slaughtering their own babies. Slaves rioting against their masters – a million Djangos and Nat Turners who might not even be slaves, but who might nevertheless identify as such in modern times. As Plato said, in the final stages of a collapsing democracy everything is positively bursting with the spirit of liberty and equality:
“And the climax of popular liberty, my friend, I said, is attained in such a city when the
purchased slaves, male and female, are no less free than the owners who paid for them. And I almost forgot to mention the spirit of freedom and equal rights in the relation of men to women and women to men.
Shall we not, then, said he, in Aeschylean phrase, say ‘whatever rises to our lips’?
Certainly, I said, so I will. Without experience of it no one would believe how much freer the very beasts subject to men are in such a city than elsewhere. The dogs literally verify the adage and ‘like their mistresses become.’ And likewise the horses and asses are wont to hold on their way with the utmost freedom and dignity, bumping into everyone who meets them and who does not step aside. And so all things everywhere are just bursting with the spirit of liberty.
It is my own dream you are telling me, he said, for it often happens to me when I go to
And do you note that the sum total of all these items when footed up is that they render the souls of the citizens so sensitive that they chafe at the slightest suggestion of servitude and will not endure it? For you are aware that they finally pay no heed even to the laws written or unwritten, so that forsooth they may have no master anywhere over them.”
Eventually, it will get so bad that you will do almost anything, turn to almost anyone, to be delivered from the total anarchy and upside down world democracy unleashes. That was the conventional wisdom among political theorists on how democracy expired until a few centuries ago.
What do you think? Maybe the critics of democracy had a point?
