Our Republic is like,
A beautiful garden.
The fence that surrounds it.
The gardener who tends to it.
People from all over the country,
Are welcome to come and admire it.
But I won’t allow extremism,
To sow the seeds of doubt in it.
Because fascism, just like weeds—
Will choke the life out of it.

Democracy is the government system that is assigned by the people themselves, where they get the chance to choose whom they want to be ruled by. Eligible candidates take their stand and represent their party to fulfill the people’s needs. It is one of the fairest ways to establish a good government where each person has the power to elect their representative, who is going to work in favor of society and for them.
Excerpt from: 17 Pros and Cons of Democracy
“We must choose to live in this world and to project our own meaning and value onto it in order to make sense of it. This means that people are free and burdened by it, since with freedom there is a terrible, even debilitating, responsibility to live and act authentically. Every human is free, but freedom itself is relative; one must embrace limits, moderation, ‘calculated risk’; absolutes are anti-human. ‘I choose freedom. For even if justice is not realized, freedom maintains the power of protest against injustice and keeps communication open.’ If you are thoroughly committed to an idea, are you compelled to kill for it? [Is this is what happens when polarization takes hold of society?] What price for justice? What price for freedom? Absolutism, and the impossible idealism it inspires, is a dangerous path forward.” Excerpts from: How Camus and Sartre split up over the question of how to be free
The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern. Where there is no vision, the people perish….Many seek the ruler’s favor; but every man’s judgment comes from The Lord. There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death. The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps. The wise fear The Lord and shun evil, but a fool is hotheaded and yet feels secure. Bible, Proverbs 29:7,18,26; 14:12,15,16
