The choice of women-voters is dominant and critical for a democracy. Women are very attentive to what other women like and so they are inclined to vote as a unified block. Since the beginning of time, the power of leaders was based on the females` support in the monkey communities.
The idea of democracy is slightly contrary to the idea of human mind. Brain, occupying maximum 2-3% of the body mass, consumes up to 20% of total organism energy and solves almost all the important issues. But it doesn’t mean that brain is autocratic, brain is very frightened of pain and very sensitive to everything that happens in the whole organism.
I’m a liberal and a democrat, so I want democracy and liberalism to prosper worldwide. Democracy, however, is possible only in a society where all people are more or less equal, strong and intelligent. Stupidity and weakness are incompatible with democracy, because they turn the weak into slaves and the strong into their masters. To avoid this, many people should be given power and wisdom… In other words, I want to give people light in every sense of the word so that they could build a free society. Light is absolutely essential for freedom…
Democracy is a mask. Mask smiling, good and fair. Anything can hide under this mask, but it does not matter. The evolutionary progress and advantage of democracy over other forms of government lies precisely in this public goodness. In order not to hide under this mask, formally it is forced to somehow match its shape. And this form is the only thing that can hold back the monster hidden under it.
