Hello, because I started to be grumpy in the thread, "Why I hate the times we're living in", I will continue on the road of grumpiness. I don't like democracy. I don't prefer something else, but I don't like democracy. Why ? Because it's a regime who turn people into sycophants and beggars. The best hope for someone living in a democracy is to beg something from people in power. And they have the slighty illusion that every four years they have some power on their leader, and that their begging could succeed. Democracy encourage people to divide themselve into clans, leftists and right winged and hate each other. It encourage people to believe in all sort of fairtytales, and communism, fascism are direct consequences of democracy, because democracy encourage people to consider their leaders as the one which will solve their fantasies. And what is a communist or fascist dictator than someone who take the power with the promises to realize the fantasies of his people ? Democracies are based on our desires, and ancient philosophers warned us on our constant thirst of desires. Democracies are based on propaganda. That's the nature of what happens especially before elections. Some "facts" are repeated and repeated. It doesn't matter they're real or not. They just have to be repeated. It's not based on logic, but in the looking. Most of the time, the candidate which was voted the most was the one who spend the most money on his campain. https://www.theatlantic.com/politic...actually-buy-more-votes-investigation/355154/ Even if I don't like democracy, that I have clearly royalist sympathies, I doesn't wish for something else. That's the human nature which is flawed. The caprices of a dictator are worse. And that's why I reproach to democracy, encouraging people to search answers at the outside of them, not the inside, and that is what makes democracy evil. Seeking for something else than democracy is the same illusion.
