The problem with democracy
for a deeply-divided land, deeply-divided people, is that the purpose of elections is to force MY morality on the opposition. I’d much rather have a benevolent dictator than what we have. There is no sense of compromise in our land. Only self-righteousness. Clear-sighted about the weaknesses of the opposition, blind to my own weaknesses. No desire to understand/respect the opposition. No dialogue. We ridicule the opposition. Compromise requires humility. No humility in our land. Only a desire to maintain superpower status in the world, to protect our selfish interests.
