Such a good way to describe democracy to young people.

Democracy is what often keeps countries from going to war. It is the number
1 type of government.
Does your country use democracy?

I've never seen in my life a more naked display of the sort of doublethink
described in the novel 1984. Democracy isnt "choosing your own way". Just
going out and doing the thing that you want to do is "choosing your own
way". Democracy is LITERALLY the exact opposite of "choosing your own way".
Democracy is the situation where you and your neighbor line up to vote on
which of your preferences should be violently imposed on each other. Lets
be clear this is not an argument against democracy. I have a preference
that people not be murdered and im ok with violently imposing that
preference on my neighbor. But to conflate this process with freedom is a
level of doublethink ripped right of the pages of the most dystopian works
of fiction. Its terrifying that some peoples thinking can be so clouded and
so muddy as to not be able to see this. There are certain situations where
imposing your preferences on other people is good but to have the general
public be so confounded as to believe that the imposition of there
preferences on other people is the essence of freedom, this could lead to
very very frightening outcomes indeed.

Those people who cry out against democracy wouldn't have been able to do so
if they weren't living in one.

deomcracy is... the enslavement of the minority by the majority
strapt313 (el 17/01/14 a las 5:26 am)
Democracy is none of these things if you are in the minority. Democracy, by
definition,mob rule. The majority (51%) get to vote on what the minority
(49%) can and cannot do.
