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

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.
Sure there are certain situations where violently imposing your preferences
on other people is good but to have the general public be so confounded as
to believe that the imposition of their preferences on other people is the
essence of freedom, rather than a process by which we extremely cautiously
and reluctantly relinquish some of our freedom for the greater good, this
could lead to very very frightening outcomes indeed.
There is a phrase used to describe the sort of thinking expressed in this
video. That phrase is "civic religion".
