Thoughts on “Democratic vanguardism” and the need to force things to happen – revealing a failing of the democratic condition

Thoughts on some effects caused by democracy – the illusions and problems caused by having no one in charge, with remarks about the “leader”

I started this some time ago.  I think its still relevant to record: I’ve always said that the fact that there is no one in charge, or no “leader”, in democracy creates many illusions and many problems, such as: Since … Continue reading

Thoughts on the unique quality of the American ‘perpetual power vacuum’ – the fear of a person in power, its origins with Moses, and the tug-of-war between a system and humanity

Here’s a thought I had: It seems, to me, that the U.S. has a unique power vacuum problem.  It is largely a result of its political system.  It creates a condition that leads to a power vacuum that can never … Continue reading

Recently, I continually find myself saying a statement that got me to thinking about some interesing things (some of which I’ve spoken of before).  The statement goes something like this: “The cold war is over.  We don’t have to see malicious … Continue reading
