Violence is unnecessary. Can you imagine the effect it would have if for just one single day, every working class person refused to go to work until
democracy was restored? Democracy would be restored the next day.
Democracy is an evil.
A Republic of laws and an economy of free enterprise with a controlled and audited "Bank" is the only answer.
But we're screwed from achieving that.
de·moc·ra·cy [dih-mok-ruh-see] Show IPA
noun, plural de·moc·ra·cies.
government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected
agents under a free electoral system.
a state having such a form of government: The United States and Canada are democracies.
a state of society characterized by formal equality of rights and privileges.
political or social equality; democratic spirit.
the common people of a community as distinguished from any privileged class; the common people with respect to their political power.
That is evil? A democratic republic. All Republic means is that the people vote for leaders instead as opposed to a monarchy. What we have here is an
oligarchy, and THAT is evil.
A direct democracy is far from evil, if you want to distinguish from a direct republic:
"Form of government in which supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation
usually involving periodic free elections. In a direct democracy, the public participates in government directly (as in some ancient Greek
city-states, some New England town meetings, and some cantons in modern Switzerland). Most democracies today are representative. The concept of
representative democracy arose largely from ideas and institutions that developed during the European Middle Ages and the Enlightenment and in the
American and French Revolutions. Democracy has come to imply universal suffrage, competition for office, freedom of speech and the press, and the rule
of law. See also republic"
It is the proper form of government that, if actually practiced properly, would prevent undue influence from a ruling class.
