Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My view is that the purpose of democracy is to keep the working class from revolting. It is a balance between giving them a say, or an apparent say, in governing policy, and then having a governing class that actually makes the decisions. Various ways to do this have been tried, none particularly successful.
