    What, you don't like democracy? Few imagine there are better alternatives. The American sovereign at Common Law is the ideal -- but it's like walking a tight rope and takes a bit of mastery. Hard enough for one person, even harder for a class. And then you die, and the world is left in the hands of the young. Is it any surprise that the world finds itself in a constant power struggle of mobs?
