Democracy presumes love

In the pictureless worlds that we can’t see millions of years beyond our own are there societies that endure built on chains?  Perhaps, but it is hard to imagine here on this little planet.   Our experience has been the opposite.  The larger and more pervasive the prisons and constraints the more vulnerable society becomes to simply coming apart like old stitching rotting around a baseball, as the Berlin Wall did.  Nor can democracy work in a society built on relentless exploitation and me first.  Democracy presumes healthy intent.  Democracy presumes that each person is important and that together we will find solutions to difficulties that serve all fairly.  Democracy presumes love.
