democracy

“we have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our constitution as a whale goes through a net. our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. it is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – john adams (2nd president of the united states).

personally, i don’t really think democracy is going to fix the world’s problems.  might make them worse – like the palestinian elections.
