“Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”
James Madison, November 22, 1787, Federalist Paper No. 10
The Founding Fathers despised democracies. They desired democratic principles, but not a democracy. As decreed in Plato’s “The Republic”, “A democracy can easily be commandeered to establish a totalitarian state”… The Founders inherently understood this, and wholly rejected forming a democracy.
