    True Democracy does not appear to exist anywhere in the World

    There is a view that True Democracy (TD), does not exist anywhere in the World.

    The system that is called “Representative Democracy”, (RD), is used in many nations as a form of government, and seems to favour certain classes of people, who have self-interest as an ambition and endeavour.

    Having said that, there does appear to be a certain wall, or mental blockage, which limits some individuals' thinking on this subject, as though RD was the only system available to us.

    Some people have remarked that this may be the case, and we cannot improve on the present system, but we think that we should cast the net widely to obtain people's thoughts and views on the matter, providing an arena for the purpose.

     

     

    Messrs Gilbert and Sullivan way back then in 1878, seem to have got it right.

    “I grew so rich that I was sent...... into Parliament. I always voted at my party's call,  and I never thought of thinking for myself at all........I thought so little, they rewarded me by making me the Ruler of the Queen's Navee!” (G&S “HMS Pinnafore”).

    Perhaps you have a general view or opinion about what”democracy”means, that you would be willing to share, and that would be a good place to start the discussion....

    "One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors".

    It will be a real task to change the current system... but something must be done about the authoritarian attitudes in Canberra.
