We Are Terrible at Democracy
Cracked published an excellent article entitled 5 Reasons Humanity is Terrible at Democracy. It is a very entertaining—yet disturbing—read. The article shows that the typical person’s thought process is so biased and distorted into a hypocritical, narcissistic, nonsensical mess by sensationalist, collectivist propaganda and cheerleading that little hope exists for the average voter to make decisions in the interest of “the greater good”.
The article touches on several of the points I make in my essay on the dangers of a collectivist mindset.
