I have moved this site to blogger.com because its just way to restrictive on this server. Now in v1.1 BETA. You can get there via www.shadowgov.net Be sure to resubscribe if you want to.
Just a quick note, I am going on vacation and broke my foot. The combination of the both with low chance of internet access where I am going means I probably won't be blogging again until the 5th of september or so.
I ended my previous blog entry, Democracy 101, on a rather American and 18th century -centric conclusion. So this is a continuation; bringing things up to date and generalizing the concepts of democracy previously and briefly expounded upon.
It is germane to a blog site intent on providing a practical blueprint for radical reform of our democratic systems to first attempt to answer the question as to what actually makes a democracy.
It is not right wing, or left wing, or even center.
It is not a conspiracy theory.
It is not theory.
It is not a long list of complaints.
It is not a display for my "superior" political analysis.
It is not some long winded diatribe against all the political and social evils we all hear enough about as it is.
It is not the ravings of some prick who just must convince you of his political point of view.
