Yes, I'm saying it,

Our democracy is a lost cause with an uninformed and politically inactive populace.

Unless good people inform themselves and start taking political action in their local communities and on a larger scale then democracy cant work.

The power brokers and political elite know this. Thats why they're kids are in privately funded school systems, thats why our education system is garbage and im talking across the board all the way to state colleges.

This is why our media is full of propaganda and lies. This is why we are kept in perpetual war.

This is why our economy is ALWAYS on the brink, its to keep us in a perpetual state of survival so we don have the drive to activate.

IT CANT WORK PEOPLE! Stay informed! Constantly inform everyone around you! Find common ground with people instead of pedantically debating individual points and looking for reasons to divide.

That's why the education system has been sabotaged....its part of the plan to keep control of the idiots they are creating through "education".

Just one thing. This is supposed to be a Republic, with representatives of that public elected through democratic means.

Other than that-- hear, hear!

Here is an old newspaper listing for the communist rules for revolution.

Sound familiar?

Recruit, you have proved your own point. This once great nation has never been a democracy, it was not construed as one, and hopefully will never degenerate into one, though many are trying to send us down this path to ruin. The United States of America is a constitutional representative republic, the finest form of governance to grace this planet, and as such, the target of choice for degenerates, communist, socialists, statists and all other manner of uncategorized liberal.

The Major will now seek out a teacher for the requisite dressing down for the obvious dereliction of duty that they engage in as daily SOP.

Dismissed.

I am glad there are those who keep reminding people of that little fact!

Democracy is 2 wolves and 1 lamb voting on what's for dinner!

A Republic protects the lamb!

The way they have the general public brain washed, it is good time to get off this Mob rules mentality and get back to the vision of our founders!

I sort of get frustrated by posts like the OP. You assume the population are all stupid and ignorant and that (somehow) the OP is enlightened and informed. I don't think that is the case. The majority of people are stable and don't give a toss if their basic needs are being accommodated.

Regards

Just the fact that we don't have no politics course in Canadian school clearly shows that they don't want a real democracy.

They want ignorant people that don't get in the way of the raping of the earth and it's population for more power and money.

I don't think that is true at all. You must have spent one too many days at the liberal reeducation camp (school).

Divide and conquer, the left and right propaganda sure helps to keep the masses ignorant. Educate yourself about both side and realize there both playing the same game.

America hasn't been a democratic republic for quite some time. The oligarchy solidified itself in 1964 with the take over by the military industrial complex.

www.oligarchyusa.com...

There will be no revolution, no change, and no recognition of the real elite that pull the strings.

So enjoy your bread and circus. Pay your taxes, go to work and stfu.

We now live under a benevolent tyranny. That's about to change into more oppression and virtual slavery.

If you haven't made plans to bail in the near future then I'm afraid you are SOL.

Not entirely true, but not entirely false either. We should not forget that there were opposing views as to the directions the formation of this new country could take. However, it seems that the portion of the founders that have won out are the ones you describe.

How I wish more people would embrace this fact! Why is it democratic elections became 'we are a democracy'? Rome started as a Republic….

Representative democracy involves the election of government officials by the people being represented. If the head of state is also democratically elected then it is called a democratic republic.



In contemporary usage, the term democracy refers to a government chosen by the people, whether it is direct or representative.[86] The term republic has many different meanings, but today often refers to a representative democracy with an elected head of state, such as a president, serving for a limited term, in contrast to states with a hereditary monarch as a head of state, even if these states also are representative democracies with an elected or appointed head of government such as a prime minister.

If America is not a democracy I guess some stuff will have to be updated. Saying America is not a democracy is kind of splitting hairs and being silly. Representative democratic republic. Whatever. Thing where you vote for some guy if you feel like it ? ? ? !

>communist rules for revolution
>found in Nazi germany

strangely this all sounds like nazi propaganda.

It seems like you're forgetting, (or conveniently leaving out) that the nazi's were staunchly anti-communist, and protected established interests/industrialists.

Perhaps you're referencing/implying that stupid meme that confuses left-right spectrum with libertarian-authoritarian spectrum, which to be fair a lot of people on the left do as well. when what is usually meant by left-right spectrum is more subtle and complex than you might think; but can be summarized that the left generally wants to shake up the hierarchical pyramid, while the right wants to preserve it.

Many on the "left" (liberals, socialists, progressives) see wealth/financial power as the defining measurement of the societal pyramid. Many on the "right"- don't see this, but adopt this definition on what is "left and right" anyway.

I guess you could say it's subjective, and that supposedly "right-wing libertarians" are "left wing" in the sense they want to shake up/remove what they see is entrenched bureaucratic power in/of government.

en.wikipedia.org...



as for getting back to the subject of this thread; I remember Noam Chomsky discussing some of the major issues with "actually existing capitalism" (capitalism as it actually exists in the real world), was propaganda... by "propaganda" he meant advertisement, and how it's designed to misinform the public (to varying degrees), and thus the mathematical model of "rational consumers making rational choices" becomes "irrational/misinformed consumers making irrational choices".

youtu.be...

For those of you against democracy, I ask you this; The people's republic of china, is indeed a republic, the same could be said for the now defunct USSR. neither of these countries are/were really democratic, you did not elect your representatives.
