Catalonia's struggle for Independence is a far too belated venture, if anything. Having escaped the grips of fascism after Franco in the 1970's, they traded one obvious tyranny for a far more surreptitious one.
From time to time on this blog, you'll read criticisms of democracy. Sometimes, in the past, I've offered the apology that democracy would be okay in a voluntary society in which everyone agreed on the terms that democracy was how they wanted things to be run. But my position lately, however, has been that even in a voluntary society, why would anyone volunteer that the majority would standardize an effect on one's life that one wouldn't otherwise have a reason to change our standardize?
Free speech operates entirely in a defensive, tribunal manner, in which grievance is carried to its logical conclusion. Speech is never truly protected. Culture takes care of that speech the state will not.
Democracy always works. However, it has remained our universal western option because people have made it synonymous with 'freedom.' The reason it works is because it is so good at hiding those features of its nature which keep its engine running. Whether it is the people acting as a sort of subconscious to the state or the state acting as subconscious to the people, democracy relies on a psychological mechanism which sees the will of the smallest units of organization suppressed for the sake of belonging--tension freed only by doing what is popular, rather than what needs to be done. Democracy is a way for the state to separate the wheat from the tares and the sheep from the goats.

The phrase, ‘Not the Russians' has been popping up frequently in defense of Wikileaks, the integrity of the 2016 Presidential Election, justice and our very democracy. A better defense of our democracy would be the phrase, ‘Even if the Russians did it.'
Our politicians are not people we know. They're not from down the block, they don't go to your church or go to the same library. They don't know your mechanic. You will never be able to call them on the telephone unless you have a lot of money or are somehow initiated into that world.
I criticize democracy because it is being and has been globalized. No one method works for everyone for all time. Am I hopping onto an anti-globalist bandwagon? No, a lot of people have been saying this for years. Countries are finally coming around to it now that the stakes are so high.
