I think American democracy is dying. Democracy itself is an idea. It can't die unless it is forgotten. In the end I think America, in its attempts to create a kind of "invisible empire" based on capatalist values, is going down the tubes. The weakness of our democracy is very simple. Never in the original constitution was any real thought given to how leaders were chosen. Now we see elections powered by the money of special interests and side line groups suberseeding the will of the people because no thought was given to how our leaders would be chosen. The next step of implemented democracy will HAVE to give serious consideration on what criteria its leaders will have to fill. In the end all governments are trying to put political power in the hands of those who will use it well for the greater good. We just need a better means of seperating those kinds of good leaders from power mongers.


The only justice you can ever have is the justice you make for yourself.
