Among Members of a Fallen Species…

“I’m just as good as you” is not a bragging point.  Over at the Register, I offer a few reflections on the American Experiment in light of the fact that democracy is that form of government that shouts “Give us Barabbas!”

    That’s an odd slander. Are you really claiming that the polity in which Pontius Pilate was administering Roman justice was a democracy? Or just that any polity the human community might establish could end up with a scene like that? If the latter, it is merely a blinding glimpse of the obvious.

      It’s a joke. Lighten up. And yeah, the Founders were deeply suspicious of pure democracy.
