What do we want?

Democracy and freedom, are they really the same thing? To be blunt, no. Although they can coexist at times, the true importance that stems from democracy is the assumption of freedom. This assumption reminds us that the genius (and downfall at times) of freedom is that it relies on the people who enact it. This can mean democracy, but it is rather foolish to think that people are necessarily going to move towards this type of a system. Although full relativism is often rather silly, we must remember the sanctity and God-given right for people to choose when it is right to do so. We need to instill freedom, not necessarily democracy (you'd think that the US would understand that by now after leaving the problems in S. America).

Also a quick rant about the degradation of Western Culture.
