No, it’s notPosted: October 4, 2011
Following the indignados protests in Spain, some american protestors started the movement “occupy wall street“, which does exactly what the name suggests.
One of their slogan is “This is what democracy looks like”#, see yourself on the following video from a spin-off protest in Boston.
Well, I am very sorry for this protestors, but I have to strongly disagree with their statement. Democracy does not – or should not – look like that. I am pretty sure that what Aristotle, Plato, Socrates, Rousseau, … had in mind when they thought of a better political system that would involve all citizen.
Sure, democracy guarantee you the right to protest and express your opinion, but it is very unfair to it to say it looks like a group of people chanting in the street with no clear message.
