Ultimately, democracy takes away liberty. It demonstrate, s the foolishness of trusting in people to do what is right, in allowing people to live in freedom, and believe that government is a force for good. The more perfect a democracy, the more liberty vanishes like a mist in the sun.

The influences of democracy on liberty, property, and the happiness of society, considered Item PreviewPages: Democracy (Greek: δημοκρατία, The term is derived from the Greek words dēmokratiā, dēmos (“people”) and kratos (“rule”) "rule by [the] people") is a form of government in which the people have the authority to choose their governing people are and how authority is shared among them are core issues for democratic theory, development and constitution.

The result of the second form of property—the interest of Mr. Pipes—is the dichotomy between the ostentatious prosperity of the few and the (relative or absolute) poverty of the many.

Pipes believes that “Democracy cannot do without” property. On the contrary, capitalist property undermines the realization of democracy.

Some argue that the basic principles of democracy are founded in the idea that each individual has a right to liberty. Democracy, it is said, extends the idea that each ought to be master of his or her life to the domain of collective decision making.

First, each person's life. Only one condition underlies the demand for democracy (including direct democracy): scarcity. The claim for democracy only makes sense on the very ground on which private property flourishes - inaccessibility, deprivation, tyranny. The vote and profit are two poles of the same deprivation of access for people to their conditions of existence.

Tocqueville pessimistically predicted that liberty and equality would be incompatible ideas. Robert Dahl, author of the classic A Preface to Democratic Theory, explores this alleged conflict, particularly in modern American society where differences in ownership and control of corporate enterprises create inequalities in resources among Americans that in turn generate inequality among them as.

In an update to yesterday’s post, “A Prediction,” I quote Arnold Kling, who quotes Peter Thiel, who says (among other things) that he “no longer believe[s] that democracy and freedom are compatible.” I have said, for years, that democracy is an enemy of liberty.

You could read the ten posts to that effect at my old blog (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here).A genuine democracy today is constitutional and representative.
