anarchism is democracy without democrat institutions of power

cris boosted

the thing about conspiracy theories is that they seem better explainers of facts than reality itself

in democracy an enlightened despot can only be elected trough the ways of demagogue democrats. in normal people this two requirements don't overlap, meaning either you can be a good ruler or a bad democrat. there are few exceptions to this rule

govermentwood in decreasing order:

1) enlightneted despotism
2) democracy
3) tyranny

relative assessment: in a democracy power is substituted by vote; when enlightened despotism downgrades to tyranny power is removed only by blood and revolution

china has the benefits of being a dictatorship (yes, it has some), namely their top-level rulers are able to rule without much distraction from opposition, and to deal with dissidents and such there are middle staff to implement party policy. the same can only be achieved in countries with much social trust and lower levels of corruption like norway. democracy is not a win-win situation, bit it has strong potential for further improvement until a sublime cumulus state of anarchy
