'Democracy' is largely undefined or at the very least, heavily contested. Suffrage does not define democracy. Suffrage means "prayers or a plea on behalf of another" which is the concept of voting. Voting means to make a vow, which is a solemn promise, a promise upon your very soul.
Suffrage being the granted ‘right’ to vote to be bound by the dictates of the one with the cumulative justification, the vote of the body, of a majority of votes forming the authority of the representative of the suffrage, the suffragium, meaning ‘vote commanded’ who can then vote within an assembly of the corporations policy makers, voted representatives, on behalf of the universal suffrage. The purpose of the vote is to allow passive consent, known as sufferance, of the corporations imposed policy, sufferance means, to endure misery, hardship and pain.
Democracy does not exist in any corporate governmental system on Earth, what does exist is representative government, which was first used within ancient Rome and modern representative governments imitate that Roman model. It was reintroduced by Napoleon within Europe through the direction of the Vatican who instigated its return.
All representative governments are in reality oligarchies:
"It is organization which gives birth to the dominion of the elected over the electors, of the mandatories over the mandator’s, of the delegates over the delegators. Who says organisation, says oligarchy.”---“Historical evolution mocks all the prophylactic measures that have been adopted for the prevention of oligarchy." Robert Michels in his 1911 book, Political Parties
Therefore representative government is a form of government in which all power is vested in a few persons or in a dominant class or clique; government by the few for private advantage, against the interests of the many.
So to give consent to be the subject of a representative is an act of self-enslavement; democracy is a vague fantasy sold endlessly by the media; politically it is commonly installed by military force against people of a chosen region, blanketed with the medias battle cry ‘democracy’ echoing upon their burning cities, murdered children and stolen natural resources.
Demos – ‘people’; Cratic – ‘rule’. “…democracy means your ignorance is just as good as my knowledge.” - Isaac Asimov
Democracy is a way to divide brother from brother, taking the responsibilities each living soul has for their neighbour, and inequitably suspending that obligation; achieved through the collective conferring of those responsibilities upon a representative, an agent of the corporation being the legal fiction of government, an incorporeal entity which removes the unalienable duty of care, and freely commits atrocities, impositions, criminal frauds, etc. upon groups, regions or society at large without any accountability toward those perpetrating such crimes, as they are under the imagined protection of the legal fiction of corporate government, who defends those actions, and gives legal protection to its agents through the fraud of democracy; being the idea of the protection of the majority who consented a collective right, however in truth and by the axioms of the land NO collective rights exist, only individual reciprocal obligations and responsibilities in equity.
The word ‘government’ is derived from the Latin verb Guverno, Guvernare meaning ‘To control’ and the Latin noun Mens, Mentis meaning ‘Mind’. Government means ‘To control the Mind’; “Govern-mental”.
Democracy is a media manufactured propaganda tool, accepted unquestioningly by the masses as a result of the lifelong indoctrination that has accrued within each of them, from the education, media and political institutions, creating a perception of moral justification for impositions upon the individual, and the unprovoked attack upon other neighbouring corporations in hostile takeovers, authoring murderous war, an ocean of innocent blood imbued upon the alter of corporate democracy, justified in the name of the governed.
The innate nature of a living soul does not function upon a democratic principle, its function upon the equitable principle of consensus, a jury for example is not democratic, a full consensus must be reached, that is the natural order.
Band societies do not have leaders, instead they make decisions based on consensus, the natural structure of society is in polycentric communities functioning in common unity, no hierarchy to impose, no lords, sovereigns or bureaucrats to steal murder or subjugate, hierarchical structures are predominantly, if not exclusively, dominated by clinical psychopaths.
Islam demands one “to be free of any evil at all times, without any reference to who the subject and object may be", evil means excessive actions, all corporate government is based upon sovereignty, in Islam the only sovereign that exists is the Creator, not even a messenger of that Creator can or could be sovereign over any other. The truly Islamic structure is polycentric community free of any sovereign and so from that reality then free of any and all hierarchies, as all hierarchies create subjugation.
