    not a reality. We are making progress and knowing how we are being targeted for disenfranchisement is evidence.
    Universal suffrage, like the principle of equality, are not appreciated by people wedded to hierarchy. Since they consider the hierarchy and the impetus to rise through the ranks to be necessities, if people are to improve themselves, rights (entitlements) and universal participation in the act of governing strike them as downright evil. If hierarchy is good, then democracy must be bad because the two are antithetical.
    Moreover, if democracy is bad, then fighting it with every tool available is good.
    If you presume that humans are evil and governments are instituted to force them to be good, then the use of force is good. Which means that whatever lack of talent or intellectual accumen some people suffer from, the use of force to sustain themselves is justified because other humans are bad. The cons' ideology is entirely consistent. Their only asset is physical force and they've invented a justification to employ it.

    We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.

    •  I love your writing, hannah (0+ / 0-)

      I will ponder your statement.

      I will say that the word lilly-livered comes to mind, in reference to content you wrote, not you dear.

      Little changes throughout history, but a few manage to make big changes from time to time.

      It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.
