Mailvox: more and less democracy

Nate nearly blows a gasket:

Hey, I thought you didn’t advocate democracy, much less digital anarchy…. What in the blue Hell were you thinking when wrote that? For crying out loud, one may be a good thing but the latter is Abomination!

Like Nate, I don’t have much regard for democracy. But I never miss an opportunity to hammer it into people’s heads that what we have in the United States, (and what we are exporting to the Middle East), does not even come close to approximating genuine democracy.

Second, if constitutional republicanism with limited suffrage is not an option, I’d prefer pure democracy over the current charade, that is neither constitutional republicanism nor democracy but claims to be both simultaneously.
