Democracy; the supposed genuine peoples system of governance, a system where society is inherently better because their decisions are made by the people for the people, and where the government is obedient and submissive towards the people. This has been the creed of the plebeians since the idea of democracy was dragooned upon the people of earth. Democracy however in reality is a contagion that affects the proletariat masses, brainwashing them into mindless subservient puppets. It is a self-evident truth that the most erroneous tyrant to ever grace mankind was the majority in a democracy. This authoritarian dictator has absolute power, not constrained by a congress or constitution, the same power that was thought to have been decapitated along with Louis XVI. A nation that implements democracy to constrain the overbearing assault on the rights of the people by government, in actuality accomplishes the exact opposite, by allowing through government intervention anything desired by the people or their puppeteers. The people are being deceived and beguiled by the corporation controlled media, and the Government, who distort and pervert the truth in order to ameliorate their own agendas, and quell their lust's for power. The people are tricked into giving up fundamental rights, because they are fooled to believe that the constitution meant something it did not say or that it is outdated. Well if you have not realized it by now, individual rights never become outdated, and the founding fathers wrote the bill of rights clear enough for a child to understand. These rights fall prey to the majority inevitably in a democracy when the people are not free thinkers who understand our acquisition of these rights. In addition democracy condones and encourages the use of extortion to win elections; in return for their votes politicians reimburse their supporters with welfare, tax breaks, and bailouts. This pernicious cocktail of corruption and malfeasance fabricates economic fascism where the government is run by corporations and property rights do not exist. (Sound familiar?). When talking about the plight’s of democracy it is imperative to also discuss the age old debate of Universal Suffrage. As a society we deny the right to vote for anyone who is mentally impaired, under the age of eighteen, or a criminal, but why? The reason is (even if subconsciously) we are aware that these people cannot make an informed and beneficial decision, and if this is why we restrict from them the right to vote, why do we not do the same to those who know nothing of politics or current events. Democracy is less a system of governance and more a tool, a tool utilized by governments to divide and control the people. Democracy is in reality not a system for the people by the people, but a system for the gentry by the nescient.
