The Revolution will fail. (Prove me wrong.)Submitted by Benjamin Vander Jagt on Sun, 08/26/2012 - 01:10
A famous observation about democracy from Alexander Tytler is that all democracies fail, in this order:
Nations always progress through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to selfishness;
From selfishness to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.
(See Wikipedia: Alexander Fraser Tytler)
The only way we can jump from the second-to-last step into the fourth step is through total humility, selflessness, and faith. Can you do that? Can all of us in this movement do that?
I really don't know.
Prove me wrong.
