Is this still a democracy? You be the judge

http://www.ipolitics.ca/2012/04/27/lawre...the-judge/

Not to be facetious, but isn’t it time to find a new name for our system of government? Aren’t we being rather generous in still calling the operation in Ottawa a democracy? Isn’t it a bit like calling the Maple Leafs a hockey team or Vladimir Putin Aristotelian?

Real democracies, as we learned in high school, are supposed to be open and tolerant of dissent and have checks and balances and run fair elections. Those kinds of things.

But anyone who scrolls through recent media, conservative media included, might be forgiven for concluding that we have something more closely resembling the opposite. Something more akin to billy-club governance. Think of the ironclad controls, the scorning of accountability, the censorship, the smearing of opponents, the power unto one. The abuses are not just opposition talk. They’re writ large in Auditor-Generals’ reports, in internal documents and journalists’ investigations. Some of the abuses have happened in other governments but have they ever happened on the scale we’ve seen from this crowd?

Deus lumen cordis mei
et panis oris intus animae meae
et virtus maritans mentem meam
et sinum cogitationis meae ?
Non te amabam,
et fornicabar abs te,
et fornicanti sonabat undique :
''euge, euge''.

Quote:Canada is a federal state that is governed as a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state.

Hmm. Could that be your problem?

Here time turns into space.

Not really, the Queen is just a figurehead, so the problem is deeper than that.

The past 20 years I've been hearing in the media, especially the radio, that democracy is something bad and now I believe it

Democracy is just the many being ruled by the few. Who the hell wants to live under that?

We never were a democracy. Technically, we are called a "representative republic". Look it up.
