Why Democracy and Equality Are Evil

To Western elites and bien-pensants the rule of medieval brutality and the violation of man's rights are legit because half plus one voted for them

Many of the people in Turkey and Egypt have evidently recognized it for what it is.

The Turkish and the Egyptian people have done the world an enormous favor! The recent resistance to Islamization by the Kemalists in Turkey, but certainly the regime change in Egypt, has laid bare the fallacy under which Western elites and bien-pensants are laboring. Unable to recognize relationships between events and ideas, they turned democracy into an end in itself.
