✹ About Thursday 30 October 1662 Clark Kent on 31 Oct 2015 • Link The discussion about the wonders of democracy brings to mind the old saw to the effect that democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what's for dinner. Or the Fatal Sequence: "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. That that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuring, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy." Or is it too bleak to think that monarchy will Trump democracy?
