In a pure sense, our democracy is not perfect, and it may be a wishful thinking still. Nothing but abuse has been done to it, since it was baptized with the wrong name.
But mark my words, when "democracy" will emerge reborn entirely or re-invented, it will be by necessity in one of those countries which lacked it the most.

Never mind what it will be called, it will answer the call of consensus.

In a dictatorship it's "shut up"; in a democracy it's "keep talking".

"You would, of course, need to talk to a large sample to find out which of the voters you are conversing with are average. The number of UK voters in a recent survey(2012) gave around 46,000,000. A modest five minute conversation with each would take you around 438 years"

I would rather have a talk with my goats.


Votes for Goats!

Democracies will die when they are not deserved, because the majorities are complicit through their neglect of fairness,
because they go to sleep on their laurels, because they refuse to learn even if briefly awakened by reality.

Yep. Heard of it, but I've never seen/read it. Eighties thing, right? Any good?
