The Evil That Is Democracy
Democracy, perhaps one of the most important human innovation, that has helped bring peace and stability to the world. But is democracy on the right path? Is it fulfilling the cause it was intended to? That is the question we need to ask ourselves.
"By the people, Of the people, For the people" is actually
"By the majority, Of the majority, For the majority."
Who'd protect the rights of the minority in a democracy? Who'd bring justice to the oppressed? Who'd bring equality in the world?
Democracy isn't about doing the right thing anymore, it's about doing what majority likes.
"It's two and a half minutes to midnight"
"Ignorance is a flaw, not an excuse."
A little something that life has taught me over the years.
How I've tried to justify my shortcomings and faults by citing my ignorance. But not anymore, because my New Years resolution is to go from,
" Sorry, I don't know"
"Sorry, let me find out"
No decision is black or white.
They're just different shades of grey.
And ideas, they're bulletproof.
