Gloss, Democracy

Democracy: rule by the lowest common denominator of kleptocrat: swindlers, thieves, deceivers of all (including self).
But that’s still not good enough: so the alpha kleptocrats cheat on top of that.

Democracy Works!
It just doesn’t work the way you think, or the way you want,
or the way you need.

A great deal of K. is actually an expansion on this theme.

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
