I have a reason for sharing the below quote with my readers. I want people to comprehend something about education that is not obvious. You see the data or information one is using to manifest the desired social norms, must be right. That is to say that one must be able to show that the information is the true logical condition from which we stand and inhabit our environment.
This is exactly what has happened. I see this all the time as a curator for informationwar. One has to have clear comprehension of the terms being used, but more than that, one must be able to convey the environment the term was used to define. So in this post I am going to uncover what a Democracy is versus a Republic by providing the environmental facts and behaviors you will find in a Democracy versus a Republic.
Yeah I know, many have heard or read this kind of post before and not comprehended well enough to understand. I hope in doing this to provide a reason to be extremely careful in how we use these terms, because to me this is the clear confusion which is causing the social divide between Democrats and Republicans. I sure hope people remember that together we stand divided we fall is referring to why Democrats and Republicans as Americans must stand together. It is incumbent upon my reader to take a look around the country they live in and see if they apply. I can tell you from experience that you cannot take what was written down in the various constitutions as the case. One must be able to see the conditions with there own eyes, using common sense to tell if these conditions apply.
In a Democracy you will find the following conditions (rules create) that inhibit your liberty, freedom and responsibility.
- The people are disarmed.
- The people are hungry.
- The people complain there is no work.
- The people complain there is no law.
- The people complain they are not heard!
There is of course a lot more things, but this is a gist. The people are not armed, because the criminals are in charge. The people are hungry, because no one wants to adventure into entrepreneurship, because the criminals just take it calling that theft a tax, so in fact the crime of being disarmed creates the conditions for hunger. That fourth one has the truth of being correct on its side as of course with the criminals in charge there can be no law. The fact of the condition of not being armed is what creates the condition of no need to be listened too.
By contrast you will find the following tools to protect the weakest (individual), from the groups of two or more.
- The people will be well armed.
- The people will be able to feed themselves if need be.
- The people will create work if work is not available.
- The people will put forth, up hold and support law where ever there is not.
- The people will speak and be heard.
One can see right away that a Democracy the people are waiting for someone to come and save the day. In a Republic however it is the people themselves who save the day. So when we write post exposing the corruption in our Republic we are armed, feed ourselves, create jobs, up hold the law and have no fear of being heard. Who after all doesn't listen when the speaker is armed. Having said all this, I now wish to explain why I wrote this post. You see I love reading.
No I really mean it, I love reading a lot. There are times when the writer is so good I can smell the place, feel the very air they speak from. Other times I can smell the barn. Mostly I smell the barn because the person writing does not have the real world view of the terms they are using. I would never write democracy when I meant republic or vise versa now that I know. Many post expose the writer as ignorant about the political system they live under. Just the other day I translated a post from another language and discovered the once again that ignorance is having a field day.
In truth the words we use have meaning only if we stick to what the words themselves convey.
So to be clear.
The United States is not and may nature's God make it never so a Democracy. Not even close. There is only two things that our Republic has that a democracy has. One is people and two is the use of voting to determine the will of the people. Note a Democracy's laws are based on which side in the discussion gets the most votes and everything as a power is up for grabs. . So the 49% are held captive by the 51% and it is easy for the un-educated to steel. In our Republic legislation is passed by a 2/3rd s vote. For such to become part of the law of the land it must than be "Ratified" by we the people.
I notice that the power in a Republic resides with the people.
A Republic is set up to protect the individual from the larger groups.
No other political form of self governance needs merely education, which is a maturity of the mind.
So by supporting the weakest link the "individual" Societies economic stability is assured.
