I hate to say it, but we have not been a true democracy for quite some time...and I also hate to say this, but it seems as if many ATS members think
just over the past decade or so, we have just started to "lose" our democracy.
When we have to vote for politicians from a few parties, we are not a democracy anymore. Yes, we are voting, but the system is just that - a system.
While I do not believe we can put the blame on one person, but on many people.
I mean come on, for how many years have we been voting the "lesser of the two evils" into presidency? It should not be about that.
The reason why "we the people" have not made much progress is because we do not even know what we are fighting for, or fighting against.
We all seek Utopia (a "perfect" government), but fail to realize that there will be corrupt people out there that will make it impossible.
If we look into the past, we have gone from tribes to cities, from cities to states, from states to countries, and from countries to practically whole
continents in terms of population control (and I do not mean that in a bad or good way).
The next step is from continents to the world, which we are already seeing.
And when we have just a few organizations ruling the world, do you truly expect to see a republic or a REAL democracy?...
We will get a false democracy, which is what are are practically in now. Leaders with corporate interests in mind, and then debate on a few ethical
issues that get your emotions stirred up so you actually feel connected to one side or the other.
The children of Nazi Germany might have thought they were the right type of government...well, we are in the same boat (not on the whole extinction of
the Jew problem though) with our democracy.
A true democracy or not though, what we need to enforce is term limits and IMO, do our best to eliminate blood line take overs which we have seen more
Lots of words in my post, but even more insight.
