One More Time: Democracy Is Evil!

Over at The Ambiguous Wink (http://awink.uni.cc/), the proprietor, aanimo, has kindly linked to my recent post, "It's The Power, Stupid!" (http://livefreeormove.blogspot.com/2006/05/its-power-stupid.html).

aanimo's comments and link are at http://awink.uni.cc/blog/uncategorized/power/, where I've posted a comment on the differences between a democracy and a constitutionally limited republic.

Anyone who believes strongly in democracy owes it to himself to listen to the other point of view. I have recommended Chris Leithner's "Down With Democracy" (http://www.leithner.com.au/newsletter/issue75.htm previously on this blog (see http://livefreeormove.blogspot.com/2006/03/
highly-recommended-leithner-letter.html
) and I am happy to recommend it again.

Excerpt:

As Hans-Hermann Hoppe demonstrates in "Democracy, the God That Failed: The Economics and Politics of Monarchy, Democracy and the Natural Order" (Transaction Books, 2002), democracy is incompatible with private property – and hence with liberty and civilisation. To ponder these two books is to realise that the proponents of democracy are either misguided or malevolent. Either way, investors beware: democracy is evil.

(Hans-Hermann Hoppe discusses his book, "Democracy, the God That Failed", at http://www.lewrockwell.com/hoppe/hoppe4.html. Links to even more Hoppe articles are at http://www.lewrockwell.com/hoppe/hoppe-arch.html.)
