Democracy is Divisive and Hateful

One of the worst attributes of democracy is how it turns regular people who would otherwise have no problem with one another into bitter enemies. It gives control, or the illusion of control, into the hands of every person in the form of voting. Every person who resents being controlled ends up, reasonably, hating their neighbors. The bigger the government and the more control employed in a society, the more hatred is manifested.

Democracy is divisive, but it isn’t just an illusion that we should break and stand in unity. Democracy is system that empowers the worst in us to control our neighbors and turns regular citizens into petty tyrants and political oppressors. It isn’t the just system that we hate, democracy enables people to actually become the tyrant they should never become. Democracy doesn’t just divide people in an illusory sense, but in a highly literal sense.

In a democracy, it doesn’t just make you feel like you should hate your neighbor. You actually really should hate your neighbor since it is your neighbor employing their leverage over you.

This is why people should never have this leverage and coercive democracy should be dismantled in favor of individual liberty. We should not get a vote over our neighbors.
