Mycket tjat om Schweiz och direktdemokrati på senaste tiden. Jag kan bara konstatera en sak, skolan och etablissemanget har lyckats bra med att hjärntvätta det svenska folket, kanske lite för bra.

Demokrati är den värsta formen av förtryck, detta för att hjärntvättade människor är lurade att tro att demokrati är frihet. Hur ska man lyckas bli av med förtrycket när nästan ingen ens inser att de är förtryckta?

Några läsvärda citat:

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until a majority of voters discover that they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. ~Alexander Tytler

Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. ~H.L. Mencken

Democracies have been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and in general have been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death. ~James Madison

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. ~Thomas Jefferson

Fifty-one percent of a nation can establish a totalitarian regime, suppress minorities and still remain democratic. ~Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

Our country's founders cherished liberty, not democracy. ~US House Congressional Resolution 48 "A Republic; not a Democracy", sponsored by Ron Paul, 3/6/01

"In a democracy, two wolves and a sheep take a majority vote on what's for supper. In a constitutional republic, the wolves are forbidden on voting on what's for supper, and the sheep are well armed."

In order to prevent democracy from becoming a tyranny over minorities, individual rights must supersede all democratic voting and all regulations. Rights must come first. Laws should come second, and only to protect those rights; nothing more. ~Stuart K. Hayashi

It is a besetting vice of democracies to substitute public opinion for law. This is the usual form in which masses of men exhibit their tyranny. ~James Fenimore Cooper, The American Democrat, 1838

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter. ~Winston Churchill

Since outright slavery has been discredited, "democracy" is the only remaining rationale for state compulsion that most people will accept. ~Joseph Sobran in The Myth of 'Limited Government'

Democracy has proved only that the best way to gain power over people is to assure the people that they are ruling themselves. Once they believe that, they make wonderfully submissive slaves. ~Joseph Sobran in The Myth of 'Limited Government'

"Democracy says it is acceptable to take money or property from a nonconsenting individual because he is outnumbered."

"An inherent weakness of a pure democracy is that half the voters are below average intelligence."

Democracy is the road to Socialism. ~Karl Marx

The fact is that the average man's love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty – and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. ~H.L. Mencken, Baltimore Evening Sun, Feb. 12, 1923

Democracy is not a system of liberty, but a form of tyranny: the tyranny of the majority. ~Robert Garmong

A hallmark of democracy is pressure-group warfare, as each group seeks to claim the status of a majority and exploit all the rest. ~Robert Garmong

The problem is that democracy is not freedom. Democracy is simply majoritarianism, which is inherently incompatible with real freedom. Our founding fathers clearly understood this. ~Rep. Ron Paul in Democracy Is Not Freedom

A democracy is rule by the majority; a republic is the rule of law. This is a very critical distinction. ~Steven LaTulippe

Voting is the opiate of the masses. ~Steven LaTulippe

A man is none the less a slave because he is allowed to choose a new master once in a term of years. ~Lysander Spooner
