What’s wrong here? We have become more of a democracy instead of a republic. Many now do not even know the difference. It is with total ignorance of history that America wants to promote democracy throughout the world rather than a republic. A pure democracy is tyranny of the majority, says Ellis Washington in “Whistleblower”. Whatever the mob or majority wants–regardless of consideration of God, Natural Law, morality or constitutional limitations, the mob gets. Aristotle called the republic “Polity”, or majority rule for the sake of the true common good based on Natural Law, which consists of principles and standards. Not something simply made up by humans, but rather part of an objective moral order present in the universe and accessible to human reason.
Now we witness the mob rule here with the union riots, like in Wisconsin, and the Occupy Wall Street mobs. These are no doubt organized by the White House, which tries to take over places like Oakland, CA, all in the guise of wanting the 1% to pay “their fair share.” These mobs will be even worse by September with the election heating up. Obama’ s army of community organizers is at work. Now we know what a community organizer is.
The first 150 years of our country went along about the same with evidence that a republic was the most successful kind of government ever established and the idea that anyone could make it here. The opportunities were endless. Then Progressivism replaced Natural Law by the 1900s as the country began to change. That is when democracy became more significant, as we saw the development of the Federal Reserve Board supplanting Congress in managing our money. We also saw the League of Nations, later the UN, allowing other countries to have a say in our sovereignty under the guise of establishing world peace, with treaties to take over. Without Natural Law prevailing, a republic could not stand long.
“Democracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy; such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes, and no man’s life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure and everyone of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the power of wealth, beauty and wit, and science to the wanton pleasures, the capricious will and the execrable cruelty of one or a very few…”-John Adams, Signer of the Declaration and President. (What foresight!).
Absent a republic under Natural Law and the Bible, democracy=mob rule=genocide.
