|09:52 am - Of Capitalism and Democracies|
I engaged in the Capitalistic practice of shopping and eating at a fast food restaurant today, I feel horrid. I'm sorry dear exploited people of the world living in poverty, but I desperately needed new running shoes and the temptation of a whopper was too great ;__; 19 years of propaganda by money spent in the millions if not billions to imprint the brand of Burger King into my brain proved too much to resist on this gloomy day, but at least it wasn't the clown from the land of McDevil.
On another note, my prof from POL 1101 (Intro to Politics) gathers great urges in me to start debates over the pros and cons of democracy. I firmly believe that regardless of what type of political regime runs a nation, whether it be democratic, communistic, dictatorial, monarchy, etc. as long as the interest of the common people is held with the highest value, then great achievements can be made, even under dictatorships, and a nation can flourish. However, if the leaders are corrupt, you can be democratic all you want, but the nation's still crap.
