“Democracy leads to anarchy, which is mob rule.”
— Plato (429-347 BC) Greek philosopher
He weren’t no dummy. He’s also proof that what our founders knew 200 years ago, he knew 2,000 years ago, and that we promptly forgot. Democracy (The form of government deriving from the Greek terms “demos” and “kratien” or “kratos”) ‘the people to rule’, or power of the people. Mob rule. It seemed really relevant when mobs of looters are roaming the streets. People knew we were a Republic up through the 20’s. People forget though that the Bolshevik revolution wasn’t confined to Russia. It hit here first in our school system, where they could teach succeeding generations we were this sweet sounding word “democracy”. Thereby instead of having limited government, all we now needed was 51 percent, and anything was possible.
This post is another case in point. Its been up for 4 months and gets hits everyday. Does anyone ever hit the ‘Like’ button? Oh hell no. I’ve seen videos on YouTube with 6,000,000 views, and 3,000 thumb’s up. People are such jerks. Just slime. You can tell it by the the drivers on the street, and the shoppers in the store. Just petty, lazy, ugly little people.
