Dear Log,

«But democracy is a notion I still hold dear. I am unhappy at the way bankers, bureaucrats and corporate busybodies keep taking it away from me; annoyed when elected officials nonchalantly relinquish it; and determined not to cede what is left without a fight. I have no intention of handing it over to someone I cannot get rid of, who is making decisions on the basis of criteria I cannot influence, in meetings which I cannot be fully informed about.»

--"My five tests for the euro: The single currency is a political project - and not a democratic one. That's the real problem with joining"

What was that old minimalist definition of "democracy" that Bucky Fuller used to use, something like "a system of government that allows the populace to change its government without violence"? Sounds like a passably good idea to me.
