random thoughts concerning democracy

people mistake democracy as a solution whilst it was deemed as method by Plato in his ‘Republic’.

it is indeed a method rather than an ends, its efficiency is slow and its outlet dependent on the intellectual power of the participants, it becomes ‘mob rule’ if the participants are less enlightened, and Plato agreed that it would work well in city-states but slaves, women and barbarians were excluded.

it should not be granted to people for free because if might be misoperated, the enforcement from philosophy king should be wisely implemented check and balance.

the present-day humans are spoiled despite less development and the world leaders more mediocre than ever.
