Could be worse, I think. We could be living in a world where SA does not clearly demonstrate the principal flaws of the system called democracy for all to see.

A society needs an example like that before anything can change. If we didn't have one it would still be in our future.

Your comment makes me think of Plato's dislike for democracy in his book The Republic.

I often think of how he said Socrates thought democratic leaders were like scum rising to the top.

They know how to play the game and manipulate the system - in this sense Plato's Republic is still the quintessential undressing of democracy and its design.

Thanks for your comment Pstonie.

Peace to you,
