Democracy

I’ve discovered a new source for great stories.  In the Loop from Minnesota Public Radio is great.  I was listening to the episode on Democracy when I heard this great observation . . .

The concept of democracy . . . or, what we mean when we say, “democracy” has changed.  Democracy used to be the method by which we achieved some great goals, some great ideals.  Now, it is the great goal, the great ideal. 

I would add . . . when democracy replaces peace and prosperity as a goal, success can include war and poverty as normal.

In the Loop is new.  I’m hooked, and looking forward to great things.
