Faith in democracy

When we look at what we wish to obtain from this age, certainly we should be realistic about the trouble we are in. Coming from the ideas and vision of the Age of Enlightenment, we are full speed diving into an age of darkness. Rationality and the clear eyed view of things we have inherited from the French Revolution is gobbled up by stupid menageries as the racist persecuting public priest of the multicultural society. Criticism and rational thought is debased by the prejudices of the common man and society, since the virtues of the state has been undermined by too much complacency and general stupidity. Virtue as a goal in itself is scorned upon, and yet we are a handful of intellectuals, dwindling by the year, who still claw on to the ideals of enlightenment.

I believe, from the bottom of my soul, that we should pick these ideas from the first French Republic, and honour them again. Rally to the banner of Socrates. Heed the words of Condorcet, whom I will give you a taste of here under.

But we need to be honest to ourselves, and look out for the prejudices and the dark prosecutors of the state, who are corrupted by the lack of stamina and faith in the democratic, enlightened nation.

But heed the words of the late Marquis de Condorcet, who, among other things, gave us constitutionalism, and equality of both women and all of men, regardless of skin color.

There remains only a third picture to form,…. That of our hopes, or the progress reserved for the future generations, which the constancy of the laws of nature seems to secure to mankind. And here it will be necessary to show by what steps this progress, which at present may appear chimerical, is gradually to be rendered possible, and even easy, how truth, in spite of the transient success of prejudices, and the support they receive from corruption of governments or the people, must in the end obtain a durable triumph; by what ties nature has indissolubly united the advancement of knowledge with the progress of liberty, virtue, and the respect for the natural rights of man; how these blessings, the only real ones, though so frequently seen apart as to be thought incompatible, must necessarily amalgamate and become inseparable, the moment knowledge shall have arrived at a certain pitch in a great number of nations at once, the moment it shall have penetrated the whole mass of a great people, whose language shall have become universal, and whose commercial intercourse, shall embrace the whole extent of the globe. This union having once taken place in the whole enlightened class of men, this class will be considered as the friends of human kind, exerting themselves in concert to advance the improvement and happiness of the species.
