You have put that out there quite often and I agree. That's it. I agree.
Still doesn't change what I said just above, that it APPEARS to ME (I can only speak for myself on this) that society only has the three gears, 1. STABLE, 2. INCRE and 3. Oh SH!T!
So you have to pick. There's nothing in between 2 and 3, it is a very wide span between those two "speeds".
It's like puttering along at 45 mph, dropping it into 1st gear and sidestepping the clutch and flooring the gas at the same time.
The only people pushing the Athenian Straw Man Nonexistent Threat of Slippery Slope Windyfoggery (ASMNSSW) RE DEMOCRACY are people who have a misunderstanding/problem or hatred of democracy. (See AUTHORITARIANS)
