The real threat to democracy in America is declining levels of societal emotional excellence. Democracy is not the true arbiter of societal excellence.
There is a widespread admiration for democracy across the world. This fondness for democracy arises from the belief that democracies are best equipped to deliver fairness and justice to all its citizens.

Ancient Greeks invented the term “democracy,” meaning, rule by the people.
After making a myriad of contributions to human civilization for over a thousand years, Greece declined. Today, Greece is counted as one of the weakest links in the European Union. Depicted below is a plot of all people born in Greece and listed in all 23 volumes of the 1991 edition of Encyclopedia Britannica. The rise and decline of Greece is self-evident. Similar plots for Great Britain , Germany, and the United States are available.
A second example. In Vedic times, thousands of years ago, India was on top and remained on top for more than a thousand years at a time when Western nations hadn’t made much progress.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security.

For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
