Enlightened Democracy

What does enlightened democracy mean to you?

By examining history, most enlightened beings become well aware that tyranny itself is the silliest idea of all.

It is, perhaps, not so silly to say, therefore, that the ridicule of tyrants is the best way to deal with them, unless one happens to be Mr Socrates.  He knows that tyrants are behind all injustices, even when such persons are not directly in power.

Please do not be afraid.  Fear is always the main outcome tyrants wish to achieve.  Members of the public ridicule themselves when allowing anyone to become a tyrant in the first place.

Alas, the ridiculous is all too prevalent nowadays, as is scaremongering.  It is why the sublime is always preferred by enlightened beings.

Have you met Mr Socrates at all?  He is usually to be found here in this serene salon or in the parlour, unless he or one of his followers has been arrested on trumped up charges, yet again.  Mr Socrates even helps out in the service wing from time to time. 

I try to ensure that all persons at least try to have a worthy purpose in the material world, particularly if they have been helping themselves too often to the tea, sandwiches and cakes provided in my little dwelling.  How do you usually make yourself useful?

My own main duty is to provide the world with a clear understanding of enlightened democracy.  The process begins with an awareness of enlightened morality, as expressed through the pursuit of world peace.  Mr Socrates and several of his students believe that most persons are too stupid, selfish, lazy or opinionated to behave in an appropriately democratic manner.  I disagree with their assessment, which is why I provide training, and even free tutorials, for all persons wishing to lift themselves to a higher level of awareness.

Enlightened democracy is sublime.  It is the source of a healthy sense of community and a healthy sense of humour.

Mr Plato and Mr Aristotle are also in my digital dwelling at present.  They are currently consuming scones with Mr Socrates in my parlour, though they have sometimes made themselves quite useful in the sublime secretariat and elsewhere.
