There is absolutely no way democracy can work until all human beings have reached vastly higher levels of consciousness. Nobody who wants to 'lead' a country is fit to do so. The only people whom would be fit to occupy positions of power wouldn't want them. The only thing which can or will work for our benefit and create absolute peace both individually and collectively will be to bring every human being up to a level of consciousness whereby the only leadership they have any interest in would be their own, over their own life. People who are standing in their own personal power have no need of crime, war or conflict. Based on where we are now, this could be thousands of years away. Putting a vote in the hands of the collective as they currently are is like giving a chainsaw to a toddler. I cannot believe after the events of the past two years that there is anyone left in this forum who thinks that giving democracy to the average person is in any way a good idea. What the actual fuck? Our current political system in the Western world is an absolute joke. It does for freedom what McDonald's does for health. Nobody has any clue what absolute freedom of mind, body and spirit is. Those are my thoughts on democracy. But this man put it better: Thanks, Ethel. I see that good old Bhagwan still has his attraction for some. And although enough of what he was saying at the time makes a lot of sense, it doesn't take away the fact that he developed into a parasite of his followers, amassing 94 Roll's Royces, some private jets etc. in the process. Another prime example of why we should shy away from leaders, always. I can agree with most of what you say. Thousands of years is a long time, what will we do in the mean time? Just let it run its course, or start and keep working on our mutual development towards that moment of enlightment? Doing nothing will not change anything, obviously. DD has worked for several centuries in ancient Athens. It was not perfect, it was reformed a couple of times, but ended not because it was flawed but because of an invasion and war. The Athenian DD model was being censored until the 19th century. Only since then it slowly made way into the collective mind again. Since the Athenian DD we've travelled 2 millennia, and the history of that can be used to adapt the model to modern times. We go and learn. There were times people said that human's flying was absolutely impossible. And they were right. Instead we invented technology to help us fly. Today, there are mini packs for one person to fly around. It's open to debate if that development was truly beneficial for man kind (I have strong doubts about it), but it shows we are capable of extra ordinary things, including genocide, nuclear weapons, but also massive revolutions to change the systems we're living in. So, most of what you point out is true, but does that mean we shouldn't try to improve on it? Lay down and die? Because the latter is exactly what the tyrants want you to do. You really want to give them the satisfaction of that victory? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
