Wow, I wrote this three years ago and it remains completely timely. Time for a reposting. Lela

What is wrong with the American system of government?

Nothing and everything!

On the surface, the idea of self-governance is a wonderful one. I own myself, I should be allowed to make decisions for my community and my state and my nation. I believe that … in theory.

Image result for image american flag blindfoldThe problem with self-governance in the United States is that we rely too much on democracy, which is exercised by idiots, who think they want government services or laws that reduce the liberty of others (never themselves!) and then put despots into collective power which they then use to take away the very self-governance we were exercising.

There is nothing wrong with self-governance. There is nothing wrong with a certain degree of democracy. There is emphatically nothing wrong with liberty.

There is everything wrong with the misuse of self-governance, the tyranny of democracy and the redefining of liberty. In seeking to come together as communities within states within a nation, we have somehow lost our way.

Democracy puts everyone in control over everyone else’s liberty. When exercised by intelligent people in a strictly limited way, democracy might work, but the United States of America of the 21st century does not embody strictly limited representation by thoughtful people who recognize the rights of others. Democracy in the 21st century USA is rule by idiots and when idiots are in control, you can’t really be surprised when everything goes haywire.
