There is a growing belief among some Democrats, or at least those among the Left, that we should become more of a pure Democracy in America, or at least within the Democratic Party. That everyone should have a say about everything.
I disagree and I’ll tell you why.
I think the original framers of the Constitution were onto something. They recognized that too much power in anyone’s hands was dangerous and had been the cause of most of the world’s problems. That included the citizens of this fine country. No one should have too much power.
I’ve seen this first hand, where a lack of leadership ends in anarchy and disarray. Everyone believes they’re right. Nothing is accomplished.
Leadership of a group, or a country, or even a business, isn’t an inherently evil proposition. It has existed within tribal communities since the dawn of time, it exists within the animal kingdom, within corporations, and even within sports. Nowhere in human history has a society existed without a social order, which includes leadership.
We can certainly argue about the type of leadership we fancy. Our current state of affairs seems dismal at best. We can even debate how best to choose those who would lead us, and I’ll get to that.
