Democracy vs. Republic: Most aren't taught the difference

Postby Scepcop » 04 Dec 2009, 06:09

In this excerpt from a seminar by Martin Red Beckman, the difference between a Democracy and a Constitutional Republic is examined.

Most of us are not taught this difference in school, nor is the type of government envisioned by the founders practiced in the USA.

The rest of the seminar examines more closely the power of the people OVER the government, and how you can exercise that power in More.. the Constitutional Republic.

An explanation of the various forms of government, and why America is not a democracy.

“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.” - Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

This is a falsehood.

When children in the United States are explained the pledge to allegiance the teacher discusses this line:
"the republic for which it stands"

So all children are explain why the USA is a republic and not a democracy. To claim that most are not taught the difference is a lie. The claim that some, all, most, or none of the children remember this lesson could be discussed, but to claim most are not taught the difference is simply a lie.
