Imagine having no one to rule over you, except for the obvious

Judges 21:25. . ."In those days there was no king in Israel, everyone did what was right in his own eyes."

I was listening to a book I rarely listen to in my Scourby bible app; the Book of Judges. I should add that I love listening to audiobooks these days, it's like having someone read to me as a little child again. It is also kind of relaxing if you get someone with a soothing voice. Alexander Scourby is one of those people. It can be hard to concentrate this way, especially since I have a tendency to fall asleep listening t audiobooks. 

The book of Judges was that interim period after Moses and Joshua led the Israelites to the promised land and before the kingdom of Israel was set up. In those days they were ruled by judges, although I would use the term "rule" loosely. As the last verse summarizes, everyone did what was right in their own eyes because there was no king. 

The Constitutional Foundation for the United States

No wonder our founding fathers felt the Bible was a good book for the foundation of a free republic and the American Constitution. A true Republican believes in everyone taking personal responsibility for their own lives.  This is the basis on how to live in a free society. Democracy is an illusion because elections tend to be rigged. Also, the basis for Democracy is electing someone to rule over you. The result of Democracy is more government dependency which is reflected in higher taxes. 

The basis for a Theocracy is rule by God. Obviously, God already rules over everything, though He leaves us the freewill to rule our own lives. No one likes a Theocracy because you usually have an elite group of "rulers." Although you have an elite group, aka the "1%", each person has the authority to rule over their lives.  In a Theocracy, each person can be led by the Spirit of God directly if they choose to follow Him.   A verse in the book of Psalms says "righteousness exalts a nation but sin brings a reproach to its people."  Democracy leads to socialism which leads too laziness and dependency, which is the sin this verse it talking about. 

Why Democracy is bad and eventually fails

Democracy is valued by intellectuals who cherish cooperation over competition. However, most of them don't understand how the world works or even human nature for that matter. The basis for the New World Order is trying to bring in world socialism. If the economy is collapsing, it is just the socialism that is collapsing.  Socialism is doomed to fail and eventually leads back to a freer society. Democracy doesn't really value individual freedom and is more secular, which makes it an antichrist kingdom.  It is nothing more than mob rule over the individual. 

Everything social democrats strive for can be found within a free society in their nonprofit sector.  Or at least that has been my observation from living in more conservative societies. For example, the universal healthcare in "red states" was provided at local county hospitals. 

Just to reiterate, Democracy doesn't really exist because society doesn't really exist. It is just a group of individuals who feel the need to vote for someone to have authority over them. The only real authority is the Most High who lavishes wisdom on all who seek it. We really don't need rulers but will always have a government out of convenience; it helps when it comes to enforcing contracts within the illusion of "society". 

Republicans and Democrats are both socialists to some degree. The former leans more toward greater individual sovereignty and more limited government. Although since both political parties in the U.S. have sold us out in some form or another, the Right is more the lesser of two evils since being sold out to corporate interests is better than becoming a slave to the government.
