The form of governance warned of by our founders who referred to it as mobocracy (rule by the mob). The greatest threat to law, order, and civilized society under a Democracy is the tendency of ignorant or malinformed voters who cast their ballot for political panderers for the purpose of receiving largess from the public treasury. The sacred trust of an informed individual voting for the best interests of his community is replaced by the motivation of selfish entitlement. The U.S. War Department as late as November 30, 1928 issued The Soldiers Training Manual, TM2000-25 in which we find the following definition: “Democracy: a government of the masses. Authority derived through mass meeting or other form of direct expression. Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property is communistic, negating property rights. Attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall regulate. Results in demagoguism, license, agitation, discontent and anarchy.” A Democracy by its nature breeds bureaucracy as each franchised entitlement group seeks greater government portion requiring more laws and regulation, which in turn require even more of both. As this system expands consuming the wealth of productive citizens, fewer productive citizens are able to bear its weight. History proves collapse occurs followed always by anarchy then Dictatorship. Let us not overlook the sage advice of James Madison, “Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have, in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths”. Finally consider the words of Karl Marx (1818-1924), “Democracy is the road to socialism.” And as we know, socialism leads the way to communism.
