Yet another long-term consequence of Wilsonian messianic preaching of Goddess Democracy: a system (parliamentary democracy) copied from others, manipulated into an oligarchy of a few political parties, advanced by an illegitimate usurper of the Throne.

In fact, recently some Spanish "authorities" have substituted the traditional "Everything for the Homeland" motto that presides military buildings for "Everything for Democracy" in some quarters. The means is once again confused with the ends: doesn't that thoroughly smack of Wilson?

Thank you, sir, for bringing "Everything for Democracy" to my attention. What a pity this is happening, but no surprise in this democratist world. Do you have any links, so we can learn more?

I'm not sure I'm willing to put so much blame on Juan Carlos for not standing up to the democratist ideology.

As for Juan Carlos, ocuppying a position he has no title to is blame enough, I think.
