Re: Banning violent ideologies

The problem with your assertions about democracy Cass is that there are plenty of democracies that are not doing what you say they will inevitably do. True for now. But I see it sliding towards it. The western country I am most familiar with is the US. I see popular pressure as the cause of the gro...
