That is correct. Democracy and freedom have never co-existed for long except in very isolated situations. Democracy is by its very nature a dictatorship; it is a dictatorship of the majority over the minority. Because the majority can redefine who can and cannot participate, it will redefine so those in control at the time will be able to keep and consolidate their power. A wise person would say that forms of democracy have existed for decades and perhaps centuries, how does that happen.
The longest lasting form of democracy would perhaps be the United Kingdom. They are a unique nation that is however in transition. The UK has been a very traditional people. This tradition has been maintained because the youth are taught to revere the traditions. This is changing because of the influx of legal and illegal immigrants who have no respect for nor reverence for these traditions. This would be the influx of Muslim immigrants who are determined to bring their traditions and beliefs rather than assimilate to the traditions of the UK. This scenario is destroying much of Europe, France, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, and others.
The United States was purposefully formed as a republic. In a republic the power or wishes of the majority is subservient to the law or in our case, the Constitution. The majority does not have the authority to give the government more power than what is allowed by the Constitution. The majority does not have the authority to abridge or infringe the liberties guaranteed by the Constitution to the people. When the government assumes the power it was not given, when the government abridges and infringes the liberties of the people, no longer are we a republic, but we have been transformed into a democracy.
This transformation takes place primarily through indoctrination, propaganda, and intimidation. When the people are no longer taught the reasons we were formed to be a republic, when the people no longer respect or adhere to the law and the Constitution, and when the people accept voting practices that can be manipulated and encourage fraud, the will of those who wish the transformation to occur is greatly enhanced. When the republic is no longer and democracy fully exists, a dictatorship of the majority is now in place and limited government and unlimited rights of the people no longer exists.
Freedom and democracy cannot co-exist. The majority or those in power thirst for power and will do what is necessary to secure it. When the Constitution has been disregarded and there is no limitation on the power of government or the protection of liberties no longer exists, dictatorship results.
This is why our founders unanimously rejected democracy. They told us that democracy does not, cannot last long. The majority of the people quickly becomes the majority of a select group. That is dictatorship. It could be benevolent dictatorship or tyrannical dictatorship, but it is dictatorship. In the United States today we have an illegitimately elected regime that believes in tyrannical dictatorship. It is their position that there is no power the government cannot assume and there is no liberty they cannot and will not abridge, infringe, or eliminate.
Two things are necessary to transition us to a republic once again. The schools must be transformed to education centers once again and elections must again become election day and not election season with tight controls on one legal voter and one vote, with paper ballots only, and closely supervised vote counting.
I really should have said three things are necessary. The third and most important is that we the people have the will and desire to be a free people once again. We must remember that to be free requires a people to be interested, informed, and involved. To live under a dictatorial democracy only requires a compliant and subservient people. Each of us must ask ourselves if we want republic or democracy. If you answer republic, you must commit to being interested, informed, and involved. If you answer democracy continue to be compliant and subservient.
