How the American Republic Degenerates into Democracy and Tyranny

Posted on the 22 November 2012 by Eowyn

Excellent 10-minute crash course on:

  • How the Left Communism vs. Right Fascism political spectrum is misleading.
  • How the five main types of government (dictatorship, oligarchy, democracy, republic, anarchy) are reducible to two (oligarchy vs. republic).
  • How anarchy (no government) is merely a transition (a tool) from one form of government to dictatorial oligarchy.
  • How our Founding Fathers rejected democracy but founded a Republic of the rule of law, wherein government power is constrained by law in the interest of individual liberty.
  • How republican governments, including those of ancient Rome and the present United States, have an inherent tendency to degenerate into democracy and then into dictatorial oligarchy.
