Is Democracy Overrated?

Yes, the value of our democracy is highly overrated, if not such democracy being a grandiose evolutionary fallacy.

Or as our former President was known to say;

The beauty of The United States is that it is a democracy, the problem of The United States is that it is a democracy. — Bill Clinton

Leaving us, beyond a realization of its imperfection, with more questions than answers.

Democracy is an attempt at creating a manmade system to manage ourselves best. And as the most intelligent species on earth now on track to living the shortest of all major species, we must be critical to ensure democracy is indeed the best system we can build to prolong the sustainability of humanity.

We must build systems in compliance with the way nature’s evolution deploys its rule, for any significant conflict with nature is sure to meet its sickle sooner than if we didn’t do anything. We have yet to prove we can put our intelligence to good use and improve our evolutionary excellence.

The exact reason the world we create for ourselves is in more trouble than it should be. So, we must learn to subjugate nature rather than control it. And when you compare the manmade systems, including our democracy, with those created by nature, it becomes apparent how we must fundamentally change our manmade systems to serve ourselves.

As you can see from the above comparison, our operating-systems of humanity, as I call them, are majorly flawed because they conflict with how nature deploys its rule. A discovery that made me feel the urge to reinvent our systems eight years ago, as I explain in-depth in my masterclasses for policy-makers.

The sign of an intelligent nation is its willingness and ability to reinvent itself, upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
