      democracy does not satisfy.
      It is perhaps ironic that idealists are satisfied with the idea of democracy, but the people want the real thing. The want power to be dispersed and not directed at them.
      The genius of democracy is that power is dispersed, only to be assembled in times of great stress. Because power, to be felt, has to hurt, we don't want it concentrated in one place, unless an occasion demands.

      We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
