Precis: Democracy

This brings me along to democracy, even love the beloved Republic which feed upon freedom. Democracy is not a Beloved Republic really and never will be. But it is less hateful than other contemporary forms of Government and to that extent it deserves our support. It does start from the assumption that the individual is important and that all types are needed to make a civilization is does not divide its citizens into bossers and bossed as an efficiency regime tends to do. The people I admire most are those who are sensitive and want to create something or discover something and do not see life in terms of power and such people get more of a chance under a democracy than elsewhere. They find religions great or small or they produce literature and art or they do disinterested scientific research or they may be what is called ordinary people who are creative in their private lives, bring up their children decently for instance or help their neighbors. All those people need to express themselves; they cannot do so unless society allows them liberty to do so and the society, which allows them most liberty, is democracy.
