According to Plato democracy leads to anarchy and anarchy leads to tyranny. Or, in other words, the excess of freedom of the kind found in democracy culminates in anarchy, and people end up willing to become the slaves of a (to be) tyrant in order to escape the evils of anarchy.
Benjamin Franklin said this about democracy: “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!”
In Federalist No. 10 we are told this about democracy that encourages different factions or mobs to become, “united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adverse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.”
The Framers designed the American constitutional system not as a direct democracy nor as a representative democracy, but as a representative republic, where enlightened delegates of the people would serve the public good. They also built into the Constitution a series of cooling mechanisms intended to inhibit the formulation of passionate factions, to ensure that reasonable majorities would prevail.
The United States has forsaken the representative republic for democracy or full-fledged mob rule. Witness what takes place in cities in the United States where mobs control. Seattle, Portland, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, are many others are examples where mobs burn, kill, and pillage freely. They and their supporters justify this as democratic protests. Meanwhile people and businesses are fleeing these democratic and democrat led cities.
This has happened for many reasons. No longer are enlightened people who wish to serve the public elected, but narcists who wish to serve themselves are elected. We no longer adhere to the rules of the Constitution with its cooling mechanism, but have members of congress, the White House and its bureaucrats, and judges who encourage the passionate factions or mobs. These mobs are generally people who have become dependent on the government, come from broken homes and fatherless homes caused by the welfare system and the encouragement of the narcissistic politician, bureaucrat, and judge, whose goal it is to create a means whereby they can gain power and wealth.
The family has been destroyed, the Bible is ridiculed and outlawed, the Constitution no longer applies, our representative republic no longer exists, and the consequences are democracy and its inherent mob rule.
