The coming eclipse of liberal democracy
Any democracy irrevocably perishes by itself. After all, all power-structures are part of boom-and-bust cycles.
Q. Why didn’t our democracy go down sooner?
A. Because our dying democracy is kept in a vegetative state.
Q. Life support by whom?
A. By the wealth- & power-holders, the top 0.01 percent, the dominant class who, in fact, have always held power. Democracy, after all, always amounts to an elite (Robert Michels’ Iron Law of Oligarchy, 1911).
Q. What is their stake in this?
A. Achieving their fundamental goal: final power. For that, it is desirable that the people voluntarily and ignorantly cooperate in the attainment of their serf status. Hence the facade of ‘democratic elections’ behind which the ‘high-degree thiefs’- backed by their presstitutes – are building a liberal ’totalitarianism,’ the ultimate power grab in human history.
