Is democracy and democratic ideals the modern plague of today's world? Why or why not?
It seems to be a breeding ground for degeneracy. Giving freedom and civil rights to those who don't deserve it, nor earned. With it, you get feminism, BLM, SJWs, Islam tolerance, Merkel, socialism, multiculturalism, and a whole slew of other shit that damages the US.
No. It just needs a source of virtue morality to work correctly.
We used to have Protestantism/the Bible. China/Japan have Confucianism.
What we need is a strong secular argument for virtue morality--i.e. philosophy in the antiquarian sense.
We need Aristotles to tell the people why they're a bunch of fucking degenerates and they need arete.
Democracy is the political organization that allows money to control a nation's destiny.
In a society with universal suffrage elections become a contest of monied interests who can most effectively sway the insensible masses through apparatus such as the media.
Surprised, thought I was going to get called a tumblr faggot for saying that BLM, Islamic tolerance, Angela Merkel, and socialism do not directly result from democracy and it's dumb to say that they do.
