That's right. If the vote of an ignorant is equal to the vote of an informed, no real progress can happen. Democracy as we know it is not such a good thing.

The Vote of each Voter by Right must be equal.

There is no changing that, and that is the way it should be. Must be. Especially for any form of government that claims to be of Law.

Of all the problems of government and politics and civilization, for that matter, that is not the problem. Even ignorance and stupidity only facilitate and exacerbate the problem, which is unrighteous dominion.

That is to say, the endemic, self-perpetuating System of Criminality that infests, corrupts, and ultimately destroys people, leaders and nations wherever it is tolerated or ignored, much less Accepted as Standard Operating Procedure.

What's wrong in the United States, for example, is not the idea or concept or system established by the Constitution, but that our government has gradually, over the last 100 years at least, by means of adopting routine policies and practices indistinguishable from the Mafia, or any other well organized, ongoing criminal enterprise.

It operates by coercion and extortion, with a multiplicity of 'laws' and corruption of those former guardians of Freedom and Justice, from cops and judges to bureaucrats and congressmen.

It does this with almost complete complicity by the mass media, who fool most of the people most of the time, and all the people at least some of the time, into believing the opposite of what is actually going on right in front of their faces.

BECAUSE they can still Vote, BECAUSE all the old mechanisms of Democracy SEEM to be in place just like in the good old days, people don't seem to notice that the Candidates, with rare exception, are preselected by the Powers That Be so that no matter which one of them is 'elected' the agenda remains the same, Power to the Elite.

Given that some of the most murderously evil and tyrannical regimes among the nations of the modern age named themselves something along the lines of 'The People's Democratic Republic' of this, that, or the other, it would be useful to consider the actual root meanings of those words.

Commonly used as interchangeable synonyms, the words 'Republic' and 'Democracy' do not share the same definition or meaning in the first place, and in the second place, when combined with the word 'People' as if to imply 'of, by and for' and 'power derived from' is worse than a lie. It is in fact a deadly cruel joke when combined in the same breath with names like Uganda or China or Iran, etc.

I think I'll start another Topic about this.
