Death to Democracy

04 09 11 - 07:27

From the finally-grasping-the-obvious dept:

On both sides of the Atlantic -- from the fires that raged in large stretches of London, to the political chicanery that brought the U.S. economy to its knees in early August -- the institutional framework that came to define modern democracy in the 19th century is in deep trouble. 

The principal organs of financial oversight and management are in tatters. Ferociously xenophobic political movements, an entire constellation of Tea Parties, now play important roles in nearly every European nation, as well as the United States. 

Faith in elected leaders and legislatures, the central and defining institutions of democracy, has never been lower.

According to the Pew Research Center, the proportion of the U.S. public expressing trust in the federal government has fallen from just under 80 per cent in the late 1960s to barely 20 per cent today.

Democracy is the field of image, not reality.

In democracy, what matters is convincing other people of something -- something that (per Dunning-Kruger) most of them are biologically unable to comprehend.

Remember the equation: 90% of any human population are turnip-pickers, 9% are warriors/artisans, and 1% are leaders/thinkers/spiritualists. In democracy, 99% pretend they are that 1%, and that 1% runs like hell to deserted country towns to hide itself away from the insanity, which to a sensitive/perceptive person is probably like standing in the path of a loudspeaker machine airplane noises.

It is no surprise democracy failed; you succeed at democracy by distorting the truth. But we have the concept of truth for a reason: if we act on illusions, bad things happen.

It took a long time, but they're finally here. Yay! Toot! Wahoo! -- we can celebrate the end of the most tedious of illusions.

Many think great events will unfold during their lifetime. Many events unfold, but will they improve the fate of mankind? Of pasty ass crackers? sick of white people - 04-09-’11 17:55
Thats why 85% of the turnip pickers should be snuffed out. Out of the ashes we could create a paradise. We could then focus on things that matter like science,nature,philosophy,exc. Anything that does not have to do with twatter or farcebook. Impacter (Email ) - 05-09-’11 09:15
Politics is the field of image, not democracy (alone at least). I am also curious on what (if any) backup/stats you have for that 'breakdown' of humanity, 90% are only capable of manual labour? Only 1% have the capacity to develop significant ideas and act in a leadership role? From what i have seen, for most it is not an inherent inability to understand complex concepts or the world around them, not a problem of intellect, but a problem of WILL, you severely over-judge the significance of genetics and race in determining intelligence/worth. Unlike communism or fascism, democracy at least has an in-built mechanism for changing leaders, which still only manages to (slightly) slow the rate of decay. However, due to human nature/weakness any system with centralised power IMMEDIATELY collapses/mutates into puritanical oligarchy, and exclusively serves the top 0.1%. It is not that democracy, or any of the 'major' systems of government are inherently flawed, it is that all their applications have been. Calling America a functional example of democracy, or Russia an accurate example communism is equivalent to a strawman. JooPe (URL) - 06-09-’11 12:10
