If a nation only has two people to choose from as leaders is it truly a democracy?
If a nation has two parties that control politics, and those parties demand that their candidates are almost doctrinal or policy clones, isn’t this like having only two leaders?
If the masses vote based on psychological tricks, isn’t it the case that the masses are in a dictatorship where empty persuasion takes the place of force?
If all this is the case, isn’t it the case that we are in a dictatorship ruled by two rulers who rule by persuasion rather than force?
Do we really live in a true democracy? If not, Why, is this bad or good, and, if it is bad, what is the solution ? If we do live in a democracy, how so, is this bad or good, and, if it is bad or good, what are the reasons for it being so?
This is not an argument, but a starter for conversation, so please dig in!!
Avoid preaching; make arguments!!!!
