the submission:

“In a nutshell I am not overwhelmed really coz when you read history, and read widely to make sure you get lots of perspectives you see that democracy has never been stronger. never before throughout the history of the world have more people; individuals, countries, nations lived under the greater freedoms that democracy offers than they do now. I know some people confuse democracy with who’s in government. some people think coz the dude i voted for is not in power then thats not democracy, but thats wrong of course. so there needs to be a revolution in people knowing what their talking about rather than the endless doom and gloom that causes so many young people to take their own lives coz rather than compare the world as it is now with how it was fifty years ago, when the cold war was almost a nuclear war, or 100 years ago when millions of people died from the flu, or 150 years ago when so many countries were at war every other year, they don’t know that there has never been a time with fewer wars, with less decease, where fresh water and fresh food is available to so much of the world’s people and where more people than ever, both in real numbers and as a percentage of the world’s population have enjoyed the enormous, comparative freedoms that come from global democracy. It’s not perfect, I know, but if you are true to yourself you too will know that it has never been better. I am not expecting you to use this as part of your campaign because it undermines your determination to use anxiety in others to feed your own resentment.
