#21 | Posted by danni, Learn a little history. Democracies can be authoritarian, brutal, and unjust. The behavior of a Democracy depends solely upon the nature of the majority. A person has the capacity to be reasonable. A crowd is mindless, panicky, emotion driven and responds to the loudest noise. Republics are supposed to be a limit upon those excesses. What is popular today might be viewed as a crime later. As I remember one century ago, the largest fraternal organization in this nation was the Klu Klux Klan, who elected Woodrow Wilson. Wilson was pure evil. He re-segregated federal employment, fired all the black staff at the White House and crushed civil rights after he led this country into WWI. He was the first to have concentration camps in the US. He is the individual who had people put into federal prison for opposing his policies. He was a true Democrat. His propaganda was so effective that Te Nazis used it as a model when they came to power.
