Supreme Joke

Posted by picard578 on February 15, 2016

This clearly shows the joke that is representative democracy. Representatives are supposed to represent the people, but more often than not, that link is cut and hijacked, and representatives end up representing capitalists. Nine corporate giants own almost all the media in the US, situation is no different in many Western countries, and people still believe they live in the democratic system. Well, apparently not so much anymore, if ever-lower number of participating voters is any indication.

Patrice Ayme's Thoughts

The USA is endowed with a “Supreme Court”, which is mentioned in a few words in the initial document establishing the Constitution of the USA. It was not meant as a Constitutional Court, but came to be progressively used that way. Thus a few individuals named for life have enormous powers. Such a system is intrinsically diabolical (thus friendly to the Lord of Hell, Pluto).

Power corrupts, and supreme power, especially in matter of justice, corrupts supremely.

Enormous powers for the few in matter of justice is not democracy. In the Athenian Direct Democracy, some juries had to have a quorum of 6,001 (yes, more than six thousands, depending upon the gravity of the matter).

    The US is NOT a democracy, it is a republic. Besides the Supreme Court is not a legislative body, or a executive body, it is a judicial body, branch of government. Supreme Court Justices are appointed by the executive, the President of the United States, and are confirmed by the Senate. Presently journalism and the press are undergoing a transformation in the days of the internet, circulation numbers for newspapers and magazine are in considerable decline, and ratings are also in considerable decline for national and local television an radio news as well. Unfortunately with the internet the quality of journalism has declined as well. Anyone with a not so hidden agenda can sprout disinformation easily without the slightest hit of NOT being a TROLL….
