"I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning." -- James Joyce
You mean you aren't willing to share?
I like to call it MY democracy.
"Gene's democracy," I think you meant to say.
I agree. It's just as revolting as "We the People"', another phrase invented by conniving liars to facilitate their subjugation of the gullible.
Nobody ever chose to be a part of the democracy, so your sentiment is correct."Our" democracy makes it sound like they are not actually subjects of a system, and are rather the original builders of the system.It's the same as people who say, "We won" when a national athlete wins the Olympics. They didn't win anything. They weren't there. They didn't jump those very high hurdles.
Well, that's not quite the way I was looking at it, bestquest, but welcome back.
