I have long been a proponent of what I call the Swiss Way. Switzerland’s small governments, acting locally, are the purest form of democracy available in modern society. Taki Theodorocopulous calls Switzerland’s traditional form of government “selective democracy.” Taki calls the West’s model of democracy a sham, citing its open borders and toxic media. He recommends America at least aim for the Swiss model.
Mind you, by selective democracy I do not mean elitist democracy, where special interests push for free trade, foreign wars, political correctness, and open borders. To the contrary, a selective democracy uses the platform to further the interests of the people rather than the large corporations and Silicon Valley freaks who fill Washington’s coffers.
There is no fixed model of democracy except the Athenian that comes to mind offhand, but real democracy to me is (was) practiced in small villages in Switzerland, where locals decide on which roads to build, what housing should look like, and what taxes should be imposed and on whom. Recently a leftist government in Berne has begun to impose high taxes on areas that until now managed their own affairs. Good people, meaning Americans and Europeans, have fled and have been replaced by rich Arab crooks and Russian oligarchs. See what I mean? Selective democracy works perfectly on the village and small-town level where everyone is familiar with what needs to be done.
There is no question in my mind that democracy the way we understand it in the West is a sham. Especially here in America, where open borders mean open roads for drugs and criminals to enter, where a free press means the toxic sludge that’s coursing through the media and the internet and is always left-wing.
There is no fixed model of democracy that I can point to, it manifests itself in many different ways, but the Swiss model is the one that Uncle Sam should be aiming for—but the good uncle is doing the exact opposite. States should have the right to nullify any federal law with which they disagree. Keep dreaming.
