Democracy is allegorically like a society where the sheep vote for the obedience school that trains the sheep dogs that heard the sheep. In the USA, the two main obedience schools are called the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. The sheep dogs are allegoric to the police, the judges and the teachers in that democratic society.
Webster defines democracy as a government by the people; rule by the majority. An alternate definition is a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections.
Seriously, the definition given by Webster is too flattering and too idealistic. The people of world democracies are being domesticated just like farm animals. The brains of domesticated animals are significantly smaller than their wild cousins. Likewise, the brains of the modern domesticated man are smaller than their predecessors. Yes, the brain of the Neanderthal was significantly bigger.
From page 56 of the September 2010 Discover magazine: “Over the past 20,000 years, the average volume of the human male brain has decreased from 1500 cubic centimeters to 1350 cc losing a chunk the size of a tennis ball. The female brain as shrunk by the same proportion.” Later on the same page: “Still others believe that the reduction in brain size is proof that we have tamed ourselves, just as we domesticated sheep, pigs and cattle, all of which are smaller –brained than their wild ancestors.”
The Utopian States is all about decreasing the domestication of man by creating governments that are nearly invisible, but more effective so that man will have more freedom and more opportunity. Opportunity is what gives individuals their security. With more jobs available for each individual, people don’t need government assistance. Ownership of a small business will replace social security, unemployment and other government assistance programs. It has been shown that an abundance of jobs virtually stops crime.
If the lack of a dominant and domesticating government causes an increase in brain size, then citizens of the Utopian States will have the largest brains in the world.
