Publisher's Summary

Most citizens are well aware that the world is run rather badly by those in power—the politicians—who are in many cases democratically elected. Time and time again democracy fails to protect the ordinary citizen and exhibits dangerous and damaging flaws. Yet, it is often held up as the model of how best to govern. 

This pamphlet presents facts and arguments that highlight exactly why democracy just isn’t very good and is no more than the best of a bad bunch of options. 

However, this pamphlet also contains hope. It expresses the belief that there is a vastly better way to run the world for those who take the trouble to look for ways to do it. It also outlines how that better alternative is practically achievable. 

About the Author

Frederick Freeman is the author’s pen name and it is used to protect his identity for very legitimate reasons. 

Only the publisher’s editor knows who Frederick Freeman actually is. Frederick Freeman is not a politician or someone involved in government. 

He says, “Like lots of people who spend their lives working hard and trying to lead a good life, I am repeatedly appalled by the behavior of those in government and high public office. What normal person would want to work with such ghastly people or be part of such an awful system? Yet currently we are told by those in the system that if we want change we have to take part. 

It’s easy to see why democracy is seen as an obviously superior alternative to other oppressive forms of government which sadly are still very much in evidence across the world. However, the belief that democracy is some kind of ultimate form of government strikes me as similar to the belief that the world is flat. It limits people’s ability to envision a superior view of what the world might be and then create it.  

Over time, this has led me to formulate the views expressed in this pamphlet. I don’t suppose many politicians or their sycophantic followers will like what I have to say, but I hope that fair-minded, decent-thinking people who are tired of the flaws and limitations of the current system will at least consider what’s here and find a way to start a process of real change.”
