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.
