You confused the "benefits" of a swift acting oligarchy over the slow halting movements of a democracy.
A slow halting movements of a democracy??
Like the dignified and measured responds the US had to 9/11?
What about the voices of The People?
People speaking out Against War, every fucking day was not Democracy in action?
What was? Flooding every available air wave with Fear and Anger, Was??
You may be too young to remember.
I remember it, like I was there.
Because, I Was!
Your next sentence is the same Crap.
Yes a dictatorship can get things done quickly, and it can move towards a good goal. So long as the ones in charge are the one defining what good means.
How Sllooowwwlly a nation can get a job done is mildly interesting to me.
What the Hell is your Point?
Fast and Furious is the way of the US.
Her policies and her people.
Get the fuck out of their way.
They don't know what they are doing.
You attempt to Stop them at Your peril.
If I did not read it wrong,
you advocate admiration for people and organizations that exhibit faithfulness to steady long term plans
that lead toward the Peace, Freedom and Well Being of The People.
You and I have That in common.
The Neatherlands has a One Hundred Year Plan.
China has a One Thousand Year and a Ten Thousand Year Plan.
Have you looked at The Plan of the Americans?
No? Me, neither.
The US had one.
I know. I saw it.
It was a ten year plan.
We did it.
Then we got a New Plan.
Kick Ass in the Middle East.
Hey! We Killed that Plan!
It is the Lazarus of Plans.
It rose from The Dead,
Like Evil Shit Does.A Baby Squirrel! Yey!
Looking at that stupid animal made me smile.
PS Addams, I advise you not to put Putin in charge of anything. Unless you wanted to be in on the corruption by being one of his loyal friends, then he can make it worth your while.
That is a goofy thing to write, even for the internet.
You advise me? (that's funny) ok.
To not put Putin in charge....
I Can't put Putin in Charge!
If I could, I would Not hesitate on Your say so.
Is being one of his Loyal Friends an option for Me??
How great would That be?
(pant-pant) I'm Loyal!
He has loads of friends.
I might not see much of him.
I know his Nation has problems of its own.
His is a Huge Nation. He does not want us.
It seems obvious the people of the US can not handle their own affairs.
Putin might be good. Would he do it, if we asked? My guess is, "No."
Are you seriously stating we can get One Person into a SUPER DUPER POWERFUL POSITION and all will be well..?
I suppose if you can get Ruthless Murdock and Dickky Boy Cheney to agree; You'd have three to choose from.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
