The Perils of Democracy
I heard an interesting remark today from some caller to NPR, of all places, reference the mess in Iraq: "Democracy got us into trouble, but apparently it can't get us out."
He's starting to catch on.
"To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free...to a time when truth exists, and what is done cannot be undone...From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethink--greetings!" - George Orwell, 1984
