Al Gore: Democracy Bankrupted

Posted by admin on Sunday, March 31, 2019

Al Gore Money Quote saying deceptive practices in government make us believe that Democracy is bankrupt. Al Gore said:
 
If the suspension of reason causes a significant portion of the citizenry to lose confidence in the integrity of the process, democracy can be bankrupted Quote
 

“If the reasoning process is corrupted by money and deception, then the consent of the governed is based on false premises, and any power thus derived is inherently counterfeit and unjust. If the consent of the governed is extorted through the manipulation of mass fears, or embezzled with claims of divine guidance, democracy is impoverished. If the suspension of reason causes a significant portion of the citizenry to lose confidence in the integrity of the process, democracy can be bankrupted” — Al Gore
