A Matter of Definition

11 Oct 2011

Democracy does not award you with everything that you want. It does not mean that your children get Christmas presents; it does not mean that you deserved your college education or that your student loans should be forgiven; and it does not mean that you have the right to occupy–peacefully or otherwise–a park, a street, or a city.

You are not, through democracy, entitled to all that you desire. More importantly, you do not get to have this anarchy of yours at the expense of my democracy.
