    Except in a dictatorsip.

    Hitler and Stalin were known for book burning, and Sarah Palin's antics mirror the scifi novel, Farenheit 451


    and now some states are proposing the closing of libraries in Black neighborhoods.

    Democray, real democracy is predicated upon an educated and informed citizenry.

    The main reason why Malcolm and The Black Panther Party for Self Defense, where so vehemntly attacked,
    was becuase they worked hard to raise the political consciousness of the grassroots community, and made sure Black folks were up to date regarding civics, and current governmental legislature and policies

    Civics, what exactly is civics. Not that many people know, or can even define it. But civics is something that it is crucial for people to understand. Most don't;which is partially why we are in the state that we are in.

    Peace!

    There is always the Internet.

    I prefer republicanism* to democracy.

    The U.S. Constitution guarantees to each State a republican form of government.

    *Note: republicanism != Republican party

    I can't hate a brother for his views or beliefs, but must commend any man for being forthright and honest

    That was a major component of dumbing down the public education system;
    the surgical and gradual removal of civics from JHS and HS curriculums since the late 80s

    The interesting thing about American reublicanism, of the post JFK era, is that it relies heavily upon the mutaly supportive concepts of synarchy and Mussolinis concept of fascism or the corporate state.
    Now germian to the topic of freedom of information, no presidents were more against that then, Nixon, Reagan and both Bush's, in fact it was Reagan and nort Bush jr, that champoined the concept of dumbing down the populace for easy control and manipulation.
    Under the first Bush White Hate radio, became a real money maker, and encouraged millions to no longer read or research anything, just listen to the propaganda, and believe.

    Now Bush jr, established an era of antiintellectualism, were folks assumed that if a president with so much power could be stupid, then stupid, aint so bad.
    His protectors, men that spouted crap, that would fall apart, nder a first graders research
    not only became millionaires but became the hottest thing on the airwaves.
    Rush Limbaugh,
    Sean Hannity,
    Ann Coulter,
    OReilly

    and their organ of propaganda

    I'm no fan of fascism. Corporations (whether public or private) are dangerous to individuals.
    My preference is for individual freedom and liberty.
    This also includes the right of freedom of association to form whatever groups those individuals deem beneficial to themselves.

    That group, in its collective assemblage, has no more rights than an individual.
    Nor does that group possess the right or power to force their internal rules, mores, and customs on those exterior to it.

    Courts should strictly uphold those principles through its rulings.

    If this could be termed classical republicanism, let it be.

    But all the above is the idealistic and the idealistic fails miserably in the real world :).
    As such you deal with reality while striving towards the ideal. It will be a battle now and evermore to maintain whatever gains have been realized.

    Both the several States and the United States of America are constitutional republics.

    truth be raised to light, this post was about democracies in general, please check the youtube, of Ray Bradbury's classic about how dictatorships are dependant on book burning and keeping the public ignorant
