    Yes, imperfect humans want power over others, and we have discovered that power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely, so during the European Enlightenment, we invented liberal democracy.

    And liberal democracy successfully limits power.

    Liberal democracy is counter-intuitive politics and it works.

    However those who intuitively seek power have found a way to circumvent liberal democracy with the Security State.
    There is NOTHING--absolute nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing.

    Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
