Democracy - noun: A distributed, intentionally much harder
to kill as such, version of the same old tyrant King. A confusing
shuffle game, a fraudulent trap, set for the eyes and minds of
free humans. A thoroughly successful sinister global power
play, having traded self determination for false representation
at closeout prices. A descent, from which recovery toward
freedom becomes all the much harder. A system, exquisitely
designed and taught, whereby the "majority" do subject
the "minority" to arbitrary whim, up to and including death.
