I think so ... but I also believe we can devise a more democratic form of government than we have at present. To do so, we must recognize that there's a long and difficult road between a conception and its implementation. It has taken something over two hundred years for the American political system to degenerate from The Noble Experiment to its present state of anti-human corruption. We will not correct its flaws quickly or easily.
Seeking those with the intellect, energy and optimism be devise a more democratic system.
I am a 78-year old American citizen. My perceptions of "right" and "wrong" have been strong motivating forces in my life (whether or not those perceptions were correct). My formative years were spent on a dairy farm, hence close to nature, which influences my views. After several years in a one-room schoolhouse in Western New York State, I attended the local high school and then spent 5 years in the U. S. Air Force. My career has been in transportation, first as a transcontinental truck driver (which was conducive to solitary thought), later as a business owner, and still later as a computer system developer for a ship line. My political experience is limited to a summer of lobbying against The Transportation Act of 1958.
