Definitely not advocating for communism or anything. But, it seems even Socrates had reservations about democracy during its formative stages, in ancient Greece. His concern was that unless the education of the people kept up, folks were more likely to vote for what was politically expedient as opposed to giving thought to what was actually-good-for-them, long term. Enter the demagogues, who offer you candy over the bitter medicine we sometimes need to take. A really nice video that makes us think about our current political landscapes (regardless of what country you're in). Enjoy!
**As always, here on Spiked, kindly give some stars if you like it (... vote even if you don't). ;-)
