This is a great lesson...
I hope it sounds familiar.

If anyone ever says "America is a Democracy", disagree with them. It isn't.
Or, more properly, it isn't SUPPOSED to be. The more it becomes a
Democracy, the less it is what it was designed to be, which is a Republic.
But what's the difference? A Republic limits the power of government to
promote liberty of the people, through a body of law that is not subject to
the whims of the majority. Attempts by the corrupt or the power-hungry to
upset this system in favor of a more "majority rules" type of government in
actuality is creating a transitional stage towards an oligarchy. The same
is true of those who want to "do away with" government, because nature
abhors a vacuum, and what will move in is invariably, once again, an
This video explains each form and how they mutate, and why all that truly
exists are oligarchies and republics as durable states, and why we want one
and not the other.
We have a Republic...if we can keep it.

This is quite good but the stability of #anarchism is understated.

Democracy is when a bunch of lambs elect wolves to rule them.

This is something that seems to never be shared enough with other.
What is a Republic? And what is a Democracy? It seems many people do not
know these answers today.
Here is a bit of education on this, I'm sure most people today don't really

Oh no, the people in a "democracy" will vote to take your house! This kind
of propaganda is why so many Americas are ignorant of politics, they fall
for this kind of over simplified propaganda and will be forever ruled by
the few. A political democracy does not mean the economic condition is
ruled by democracy (it can be, doesn't have to be, it would be wise to).
The political democracy would be about the "law" as well, a "Republic"
doesn't have a monopoly on the law, all "forms" of government have some
demonstration of "the law". See how this was manipulated to give a false
sense of democracy vs "a Republic" (which is an oligarchy - our founders
were an oligarchy, with overt slavery). A democracy can self-correct, a
Republic has no need to, its rule is by and for a select few, in America's
case, its usually been for some kind of "property owner" (those slaves
again and those who were first allowed to vote, before the right was given
to all men and later to all women and later again for all positions within
the "Republic"). A Republic can "vote" to take your property as well and
does, to serve the wishes again of a few. This is utter rubbish as a
political lesson. Peace

I'm not going to come on here and throw harsh words, but however we are a
Republic and it doesn't matter what people say. We stand for a Republic in
fact we pledge to that Republic every time we pledge our allegiance to the
flag. In a Republic the Government is held by certain set of inalienable
rights, The Bill of Rifhts, that protects NATURAL RIGHTS from being taken
away by tyrannical goverments or other individuals. Seems the real
brainwashed are those who think otherwise.
P.S. In a Republic people can still vote to have people represent and
protect their rights.

This video is biased as fuck and most of it isn't even factual, it's
subject to opinion. Conclusion: bullshit video.

LOL, the propaganda spin and distorted presentation of Roman History to
support an ideology is so blatant its funny.
Buy Bimbam Bread because any other bread is bad, look the Romans ate some
other bread which cause the empire to collapse, there you go, so eat Bimbam
