How Democracy Implodes on Itself

When there is a convergence between political aggression and the tabloid antics of popular culture, democracy implodes on itself.

When would-be demagogues employ an art of persuasion that calls on extreme forms of the suspension of disbelief, democracy implodes on itself.

When there is no longer separation between that which is real and that which is not, democracy implodes on itself.

When we allow megalomania to rise to power,

democracy implodes on itself.

When we replace reason with belief, democracy implodes on itself.

When we incite the mob to bring about justice, democracy implodes on itself.

When we invite fear to ignite change, democracy implodes on itself.

And when we seek darkness to solve problems, democracy implodes on itself.

Democracy: handle with care.
