Ursula in her comment at my earlier post Democracy, had this to ask.
“Seriously: What do you suggest? Unless you are willing to hand me the scepter. Then we’ll have paradise on earth. I will rule the world and we’ll all live happily ever after: Snakes being turned away at the gate. Fancy being consort or at least adviser to Her Ruling Mighty Highness? I myself had worse job offers.”
I can’t resist the temptation to put this cartoon down here.
What do I suggest? I wish that I had an answer to that, that would make sense in today’s world. There is only one answer and that is to make democracy work as it is supposed to work. Wikipedia does a reasonably good job of defining that;
“Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives. Democracy allows eligible citizens to participate equally—either directly or through elected representatives—in the proposal, development, and creation of laws. It encompasses social, economic and cultural conditions that enable the free and equal practice of political self-determination.”
A pipe dream dear Ursula.
