Democracy or Slavery: the Truth Behind Western Civilizations.Submitted by sawrie on Fri, 02/26/2010 - 13:19
Oppression in this society may not be as clearly understood, but is just as real, as the oppression in other countries: only men don't understand it here.
Laws cannot sanction giving few men power over many and then be seen to be democratic. If democracy is the majority of men, seeking the good of the whole: then the rules must promote goodwill towards the whole. Once laws give individuals power over the multitudes, it is inevitable that you will have tyranny: although it may not be recognized as such.
Law cannot be seen to give power to a small group of men over multitudes: in order for them to remain democratic. Democracy demands that the desired will, of the majority of men, be enforced, and unless we are not a democratic society, our laws are violating society: are tyrannical and unjust. For this reason many have given up hope in our society and feel that they are helpless against the system.
