Stuff I think is Cool
Writing an essay, need your help.

maxlibertarios:

I’m writing an argumentative essay and my topic is ” Representative democracy is detrimental to society.” 

My reasons for this include 

  • Creates a false sense of control over the government
  • Since leaders come from society, people have a false notion that they too can be a leader one day
  • Creates a group of ruling elite

I need to cite outside works. I need quote from “experts” to back these reasons up. If anyone has any ideas, I’m all ears.

I’m LITERALLY just about to go to bed.

but if you have time I’ll post some stuff from Mencken’s Notes On Democracy tomorrow 

also Felix Morley’s Freedom and Federalism (which I JUST finished) has a lot to say about democracy, most of it negative but very insightful
