@alfichaud @Renew_Democracy @stephenfry Democracy is poisoned by ad hominem assertions in the arena of thought, the personal attacks degrade ideas in favor of personality and ambition. The fault is in grandiosity of the personality and not dissent at large.

@Renew_Democracy @stephenfry Democracy is the best of a poor lot. It's drawback is when you give folks too much freedom, individual rights&privileges run up against each other. Everyone has rights but no one has responsibilities any longer. it's a matter of reconciling individual rights with the collective.
