How to End Democracy


I’m on the road again. Three days back in San Francisco after a New Orleans trip that is still echoing on in my thoughts and now off to Niagara Falls for the Canadian Orff Conference. Where apparently Spring means temperatures in the 30’s and 40’s.

So I’m here in Chicago Airport and I just signed on to Wifi and as we all do, I accepted the terms and conditions without reading a single word. In these days, maybe dangerous to give ideas to the fascists, but if they really want to bring down democracy as we know it, I know a simple way:

Just bury in the long paragraphs of Terms and Conditions things like, “By accepting these terms, I am agreeing to relinquish all participation in the democratic process and give absolute power to our supreme leader. I relinquish my right to an attorney, my right to free speech, my right to vote."

Done. A bloodless coup. Now excuse me while I check my mail.
