I don't know about you, but I celebrate the death of democracy, with all its implications and rammifications, with all its dangers and its destructive powers, with all its calamitous combustion. I celebrate the death of democracy, because I celebrate the beginning of an awakening - where consensus will be dead and buried, and the herd will matter not a jot! Instead, it will be up to truly great and exceptional men and women to claw their way through the dark, dingy and impenetrable fog of futility and fallout. Let us celebrate democracy's approaching end, let us celebrate its self-destruction. Let us rejoice, for democracy's fate is sealed!

Any thoughts?

So you don't care about the implications and rammifications of other political systems? :confused:

Democracy's fate is sealed, yes. Spengler was right; the Whigs and their idealistic historiography were wrong. I just pray that I live long enough to see the rise of new systems of governance in place of Anglo-American liberal democracy.

Do you mean Representative Democracy, or just Democracy in general because many people don't appear to a actually know what the difference is...

One is an oxymoron, the other is tyranny.

If Democracy is Tyranny, care to propose a system of collective decision making which isn't?

the implication is that representative democracy is not rule of the people, and neither is it desirable since it would be tyranny, but it does have democratic functions, it is more limited than a pure democracy.

Monarchy. A monarch delegates responsibilities to his advisors, so the decision-making is collective, in a sense.

If you mean a system that takes into account the opinions of the public as a collective, then I'd ask you why you care about that.

I agree that we are likely to see a move towards undemocratic political organisation in the future but I doubt that it will be a desirable alternative in this case. I worry that it wouldn't be rule by a monarch or an aristocracy that is responsible but that it would be demagogic dictatorship of the worst kind.
