Quick Thoughts On Democracy

1. Democracy is evil.

2. The idealized version of democracy amounts to nothing more than complete mob rule.

3. The masses do not know what is good for them. The masses are ignorant and malleable, and manipulated easily by charisma. They know nothing.

4. However, a democratic republic is viable. The republic balances the irrational passions of a democracy without becoming a full fledged oligarchy.
