Anonymous said: While direct democracy for presidential voting is a better idea, a total is democracy is a terrible idea. In a democracy the majority rules, meaning that if the majority decides they want your bike, they can take it. In a republic the minority is protected from things like that happening.
Where are you getting this from? Did your bachelor’s degree history teacher tell you this last year when he went on an off-topic rant about politics?
The majority will never vote that stealing bikes is okay because they themselves have a bike, have a friend that has a bike, or more dominantly people have moral codes that certain activities aren’t okay.
You’re not afforded any more protections under a republic; you’re actually afforded less because of terms, gerrymandering, interest groups, and political parties.
I liked you better when you just reblogged yourself talking abt trains.
I collect weirdos. No, I have been collecting the same damn weirdo in different packaging since circa 2007.
