Democracy is not about getting the "best" or the "wisest", or the most "moral" government. It's about making it as easy as practically possible to get the government we deserve--or think we deserve. If we think we deserve better government, we don't have to raise an armed insurrection, we don't have to conduct massive civil disobedience, we can just go to the ballot box and vote it in.
But we have to do it.
If we tolerate evil, we will have an evil government. If we tolerate being lied to, by the government, the media, corporations, by anyone, we will be lied to. If we tolerate being exploited, we will be exploited. If we tolerate being enslaved, we will be enslaved.
Slaves deserved to be governed by slave-owners.
That is all. You may now return to your dogmatic slumbers.
