—“People talk about the failure of democracy. I see no evidence that we have lived in this system for the past hundred years – only that we have been told we live in this system and that it is the best.
All of the loud voices for the wonders of so called liberal democracy have been liars, and people who readily violate the concept they supposedly embrace.
It is lies and liars, more than anything that has lead to our situation,more than any political beliefs or institutional structures.
Other folks can survive and even thrive with a culture of deception. it clearly kills the european. we do not always have to know the truth, or be paragons of honesty to the last man. but we must be focused on approaching the truth, questing for it, and living it, in spite of any obstacles.”— Neil A.
