"Whats Gone Wrong With Democracy"

"Whats Wrong With Democracy" is an essay published in the economist and we will read it and discuss it at next months Thinkers Club. The essay can be found and read at www.economist.com/democracy. Member Nathan suggested this for next month. Is there anything wrong with democracy, our democracy and if there is what can be done to fix it or is it too late as some think that as each day goes by here in the U.S. do we sink more and more into a totalitarian state as some think, or is the concept of democracy just a myth.

UH OH!!! This could lead the discussion into the murky depths of politics. this Meet-Up could be really lively so, bring your ideas your ideology and your guns loaded and lets have some fun.

See you at the Twinsburg library 7:00 P.M. May 7

    Let's begin with the essential difference between a democracy vs. a republic, then the difference between a constitutional republic vs. other varieties. The Economist hasn't. As a result, most of the article is confused. The questions of democracy can be discussed, but the article offers no guidance; it's too garbled. Further, when the Chinese economy crashes this year or next, one of The Economist's absurd main arguments will be obviated because fascism; whether Chinese, European, or American; always leads to economic failure. The question is must "democracies" (in reality, democratic republics) always devolve into fascist states? Historically, it appears to be the case.

    Rhetorical guns, that is. The library would discourage anything else.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
