Shrimp… victims of a Republic where Democracy does not exist. They are not free to choose their right not to be caught and are hunted by the few that prey upon them. LOL
The Difference between Republic and Democracy.
Every religion in the world past and present has failed to stop the ‘Habit of War’. Why? Because a large percentage of the fixed dogma ideas in those religions are mixed up with wrong thinking ‘Satanic Verses’ and Myths interwoven with wisdom ideas. This confuses people because a large percentage of people want to live comfort zone simple lives, void of complex ideas and hence, they cling to the good ideas in a religion and refuse to reject the wrong teaching bad ideas. They foolishly choose the practice of ritual instead of choosing peaceful independence. Often, they reject ‘Freedom of Speech’, Freedom of Choice’ and ‘Freedom of Equality’ by enforcing anti-freedom ‘Blasphemy Law’. Thus, their religion fails to keep the peace of goodness and decency and kindness and integrity and justice.
Philosophy the ‘Love of Wisdom’ and the ‘Quest for Wisdom’ has made many mistakes when they reject religion. They have chosen wrong thinking political system ideas which reject ‘Freedom Values’ and thus their boring ideas, encourages and increases conflict. Ideas like # Plato Republic, Utopia and Marxism and others are anti-freedom negatives which only encourage the ‘Habit of War’ like Religions do.
# Plato negative Republic idea, not to be confused with the correct meaning of the word Republic used today in pro-democracy free world countries; a word which is incorrectly used by anti-freedom ‘Communist Beijing’. There is some confusion in the meaning of Democracy versus Republic.
America is supposed to be a Republic with an elected President by the people voting system. Which makes it a Democratic Republic. Before ‘Communist Beijing’ conquered China, the Nation was a genuine Democratic Republic, like Taiwan is today.
It is argued that a Democracy and a Republic are two different political systems. Perhaps the idea started to evolve that way, but somewhere along the line the two ideas merged to become one in pre-Communist China, post Emperor rule, when they lived free, and in post Monarchy USA when they became free in Independence, void of tyranny.
In a Republic, a President is elected or nominated. In America, self-nomination is common when they gain support by party members. But in the end the President is still voted in by the people.
It is argued that a modern Republic State is held by the people and their elected representatives, hence by the pro-election system the Republic is a Democratic System, which means that a Republic is a Democracy. However, the original idea that a Republic is founded upon a Constitution still stands true. But now in addition the will of the people is also considered by votes.
In Ancient Athenian Greece and Roman Empire times, a Republic was held by only some individuals in power control. The people had no say. In today’s society a ‘Democratic Republic’ gives power to the people but still stands strong in support of its Constitution.
The only way the use of the word ‘Republic’ works for Communism is in its original ancient idea that there is no democracy and the power of rule is in the hands of a few. Such a rule with a wrong thinking Constitution, can create a despot ruled society as happened in Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome and now in ‘Communist China’.
A good government should be dynamic and flexible supporting the needs and will of the majority of people, thus Democracy must prevail, but a good Constitution must be protected and preserved to keep constraints on the decision-making behaviour of government.
Thus, the process of a Republic and a Democracy must merge as one to become a wiser decision process in government, which gives people the right to choose the kind of society they want to live in as free citizens, in speech, choice and equality.
The negative differences between Republic from Ancient Times, to current Communist Chinese mentality has been abandoned by those who treasure ‘Liberty’ and Democracy to protect ‘Freedom Values’. Democracy has mostly merged with a good Republic Constitution creating a better form of Government, by the people, for the people, of the people in ‘Liberty Based Governments’ like America.
Communist China rejects the democratic form of a good Republic choosing the limited thinking of restricting government rule to the few, who have the power to overrule the rights of the people to live free.
There is only one path, a way out of authoritarian thinking, and that is the path of advanced ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ which guarantees when the world calmly lives by pragmatic wisdom common-sense, a life of freedom and independence, void of the ‘Habit of War’.
Only a majority world that lives the free dynamic independent spirit of ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ can dismantle the insane ‘Habit of War’.
‘Philosophical Intelligence’ is the way… there is no other ‘Belief System’ way that can succeed.
The problem is not that the solution does not exist, the problem is that far too many people are intellectually lazy and refuse to make the effort to learn the most advanced intelligence in the Universe called ‘Philosophical Intelligence’… the way of freedom.
A true ‘Free Spirit’ knows the way of ‘Philosophical Intelligence’.
