The fact is those who put out those ads have much more time and resources than you ever will to promote your agenda. Just calling them out on it won't work especially since these corporations and interest groups know how to psychologically target the vast majority of the population with their propaganda. This leads us to the problem with democracy and that those smart enough to cut through the bullshit and see the truth are a minority. This is why we get god awful politicians who are only in it for themselves elected by the unthinking masses. The fact remains that when you get majority to vote you only get those who know how to manipulate the majority.

You know criminals you see in prison are never as bad as those who abuse their power then blame it on the average voter. "Well you are the one who voted for me" they say and guess what they are right. Anyways if anyone should deserve to be killed its those who have contributed nothing whose decisions have caused many pain and suffering.

Yeah but who are the "Democracy Makers" the people who "manage" all the votes. There's also the problem of all of the many administrative tasks which require decisions to be made how many times are all the workers expected to stop working and go vote. Also even if it was perfect mass democracy you have to consider there is only a very small percentage of brilliant people compared to the average worker. I would rather put my trust in decisions from a person who knows what they are doing rather than the majority of factory workers.

Instead of a democratic system where a mass amount of mostly no-nothings make decisions. It would be better to pick leaders based on what they have contributed to the company and others within it for their specific job.

but they could say:

  1. Its entirely possible to get around in this capitalist world without a smart phone. I you feel so inclined you could go live out in the bush like a caveman and hey whats stopping you?

  2. That's pretty ironic coming from you an iPhone user. Just goes to show how much you truly believe in your statement. Actions speak far louder than words!

  3. Prove it!

The workers don't have enough time to do all the many administrative tasks to keep the company running. Wait a co-op you say? Well co-ops never grow very large (for obvious reasons) everything would be a small business. But there's nothing wrong with that is there? Well it would mean no large industrial plants could ever happen - say good bye to things like computers and cars! But wait isn't this the old system except its on a smaller scale and everyone is getting paid equally! Well at least everyone has equal pay. But that brings up the question do the lazy members of a business deserve the same pay as the productive members? Without some form of meritocracy the industrious members would find no reason to put in anymore effort than the mediocre, lazy ones and either quit or become mediocre and lazy themselves. The result of this would be a product that reflects the lowest common denominator of the society!

In an extreme individualist system like anarchy there will always be crime and murder because everyone is always thinking about themselves and not the collective group. A good example of a society in which (at a day to day level) everyone considers the collective group is modern Japan. There are stories of people visiting japan leaving their $2000 bike on the street in the middle of the city then coming back 6 years later to find their bike exactly where they had left it. When you leave your wallet on the train it is sure to get back to you. The streets are spotless because no one litters. The list goes on but I'm sure you get my point.
