Default Re: The Rule of Quantity Over Quality - The Myth of Democracy

DRAK...hav'nt read the post yet.

There is a quote by Thomas Milton...

"They, who have poked out the peoples eyes condemn them for their blindness".

What if the people recieved DIRECT instruction in the classics and were taught to "think" and indeed our social structures ACTUALLY gave time for people to become directly involved in the political process at the grass roots level?

Are we straight back into surfdom? How can we gaurantee the King will be just?

Can we have a mix of Liberal Democracy and a deep connection to place and people?

Has Liberal Democracy EVER had a chance?
