Is it time to chuck democracy into the garbage heap of history?

October 30, 2018

Democracy would really only work if the sum of what threatens to divide society is considerably less than what may unite it. Under those conditions of equilibrium, it is possible to work towards common ground.

Unfortunately the politics of unity no longer seems in vogue any longer…I suspect that may be because it has reached the end of its product life cycle.

Politicians and leaders are increasing resorting to hate, emnity and what may separate brother from brother to further their specious ends….this unfortunately is the new glue that unites people.

Under those lamentable conditions democracy will only be a crowbar for the tryanny of the mob.

It is conceivable since the inception of Plato’s Republic more than 2,000 years ago….democracy is now truly dead!
