The way the US is going proves to me that democracy and capitalism is not the way either.
I have come to a similar conclusion as well.
There's a reason why the U.S promotes Democracy, while they themselves remain a Republic.
It's because true Democracy doesn't work, just as the Founding Fathers predicted.
And the U.S knows it, thanks to the exporting of the ideals of Democracy, the U.S was able to get rid of much of the influence the European powers had after world after WW2.
And the lesser countries that embraced it, as predicted fell into majority rule, where the minority are ruled by the Majority, dividing the country and preventing said country from ever being able to compete with the great powers.
I believe there were such hopes for Russia to fall prey to this as well, but for now at least that hasn't really happened, but there will come a time where the stupid will be the majority and cripple the country.
So hopefully someday soon Russia can restrict the voting Privilege to only those who are Net-Tax payers and Soldiers.
No Representation without Taxation.
I think capitalism's ok, just that when corporations get so big that they try to seize power, that's when the Government need to intervene and take them down a peg.
