Best Argument Against Democracy 3


"You only hire people with PhDs in neuroscience to be brain surgeons? Cis-Hetero S***lord!  If you really cared about hiring qualified doctors rather than maintaining the white supremacist cis-heteronormative patriarchy, you'd be more than willing to hire an illiterate junkie from the ghetto without a high school diploma. Check your privilege!" /s

That would be totes funny if far too many people didn't believe that unironically. This is what you get when the next generation has been coddled through “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” and brainwashed into respecting other people’s “microaggressions” and “personal pronouns.”

Democracy only works when there’s an educated and informed populace. We don’t have that. Not when too many Americans believe that vaccines cause autism and GMOs cause cancer. Not when a significant portion believes that the sun revolves around the earth and that “food containing DNA” should be labeled. Not when the next generation supports socialism while socialist countries like Venezuela burn. Not when Donald Trump is leading the polls. Especially not when Trump is leading the polls! We don't have democracy. We have "dumb"-ocracy. We have Idiocracy. A government of the stupid, but the stupid, and for the stupid.
