Oh, I'm not seeking to condemn democracy. I'm arguing that the democratic peace thesis is at best an overly optimistic dream based on favourably chosen criteria, and at worst overlooks the failings of democracy. No political system could reasonably quell all sources of violence. Democracy does well, but let's not kid ourselves.

I was actually perusing the anarchism section of the library at uni yesterday. There's a Tolstoy book there that I really need to read when I have the time.

But I'm a social democrat.

I was thinking more of your usual benevolent dictatorship... the only issue is fighting over which of us gets to be the dictator.

Wish you hadn't been curious?

It was hilarious at the time, but so very, very wrong. And somehow it transitioned into postwhorehouse stats! We have such unique ways of seguing between topics here ...

I already have an Axver For Dictator LJ icon. Therefore, I am the dictator.

I bring benevolence: railways, setlists, an abundance of music, and all the chocolate my citizens desire.

Me too. Except for the fact that he argued with Germaine Greer over the issue of porn.

...you know Graham Chapman's on a Cure album?

And I was intending to put the IPL on ...

I'd been wondering for ages who had the most posts in the Kunstmuseum setlist party. I was looking it up and decided to just do the whole stats thing because i was bored.
