I've been busy again these past few days so I haven't had the time to put up a considered piece. Still, I thought this video by Rick Shenkman was worth putting out there for consideration by those who read my blog. Shenkman, Associate Professor of History at George Mason University and author of the book, Just How Stupid are We?, gives a good talk outlining the problems of modern democracy. Neoreactionaries may particularly be interested in the last five minutes of his talk. If pressed for time the good stuff starts at the 15minute mark.
