The Distance of Democracy
Democracy is a distant form of governance, beguiling people into believing that freedom belongs to all. The emblem of political justice shields a culture of silent violence. Behind each face lurks the unimportant anonymity of an individual, the biographies unpublished and destroyed to avoid discussion of whether democracy is compatible with freedom. Democracy is producing a culture of existence that disdains though and promotes the jargon that splits society into categories, rendering voices and language an aberration of their natural function.
