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.

Pure democracy, yes, but more so pure capitalism. Both are founded upon the inherently immoral and destructive value of self interest

>Who don't deserve it

Anyone who sold out Americas future to China so they could drive to Wal*Mart one more time.
AKA everyone who voted for Reagan or Bush

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.

Democracy will have a tendency to realize the mores of the lowest common denominator. It's still the best we have though. Shoo shoo, Dark Enlightenment. Viva Democracy!

Kind of, but I can tell from your examples that you're an idiot

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.
