Democracy: an evil mind-virus

26 October 2012, 15:29
I decided to write this essay to expose Democracy for the evil mind-virus it really is. Let me start by saying that I grew up in a home that practiced democracy. However, my parents never took it too seriously and once I was old enough, I started to read about other forms of government, finally saw the light and freed myself from the ridiculousness that is democracy.

You may think that people that follow democracy are harmless and we should just leave them to their delusions, but do you know what harm democracy has done? Let us take a look:

Countless wars have been fought in the name of democracy. Millions of people died because of democracy. Even now, armies occupy at least two countries trying to enforce their deluded concept of government on these poor defenseless people. Democracy voted people like Adolf Hitler into power! There are democratic governments around the world amassing large armies and stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction, should anyone threaten their evil ways!

But the horror of democracy does not stop there! These democratically elected government officials are all corrupt, from the very lowliest town mayor, right up to the highest levels of power. Do you know that as recently as the late 1990's the President of a Democracy in America was charged for lying about having sex with one of his interns!

Democracy is based on a silly document called a "constitution". The whole power of the government lies in it. Yet, the very people who practice democracy cannot even follow it. And any free thinking individual that has done a bit of reading can see that most constitutions are just slapped together from the bits and pieces of older forms of government. These documents were written by people who had enough of other forms of government and concocted this idea in some shed only to pass it off as their own ideas. What a crock!

The worst is that the poor sheeple has been fooled into believing that if they dutifully go and vote every couple years that they might even get some sort of representation in government as a reward for sticking with this system! Ha! How stupid can they be! I just laugh at them as they trudge off to the polls while I lay around doing nothing on  voting day.

These democratic governments then proceed to force their own people into giving up large chunks of their hard earned cash. Can you believe it! Yet these same followers claim that the government owns the mints and money presses! Now I ask you with tears in my eyes, if the governments really owned the mints, why couldn't they just print more money for themselves and leave their poor followers' incomes alone? It's all just a huge money-making scam, if you ask me.

These followers also claim that their democracy is good, yet the governments routinely haul off people to a place called "jail" for doing "bad" things. Some governments even kill people for doing "bad" things. These threats of punishment is held over people to try and keep them in line. What good government would threaten its own people with imprisonment or death? And this is all done in the name of democracy and authorised by their barbaric "constitutions". Who are these democracies to tell me what is right and wrong in any case?

If you are still not convinced that this mind-virus called democracy is a threat to you, I will point you again to the Democracy of America, where they FORCE children to swear allegiance to their democracy from a very young age. If this isn't tantamount to child abuse, well I just don't know!

Which brings me to the point of how Democracy has made its way into our schools. If you want your child brainwashed everyday by this evil system, be my guest, but don't force your views of governance on my children! I teach my children HOW to think, not WHAT to think, thank you very much!

I will end this essay with a story about how people try and bring me back from my fallen ways, back to this barbaric democracy. I ask them which form of democracy I should follow? You know, there are so many different forms. If they can't even decide among themselves which form of democracy is the "right" one, they shouldn't bother me with their silly outdated ideas of government.

People of the world, I beg you to go and read for yourself about the evils of democracy. Inform yourself of all the different forms of governance and you may some day free yourself from the mind-virus that is democracy. 
If there ever was a true creator of democracy, I say to him / her "I have no problem with you, but save me from your followers!"

NOTE: This essay is a work of satire. The intended audience is hopefully intelligent enough to know its aimed at them and to show them how stupid some of their arguments are.
