A Greek invention, democracy is highly overrated. For starters, it never worked in Greece. The first philosophers were fascists and, even today, 2,500 years later, the 'cradle of Western civilization' remains an incompetent state. Roman emperors and a vengeful, authoritarian God are the true European success stories.

    Yunanlı bir icat olan demokrasi çok abartılıyor. yeni başlayanlar için, yunanistan'da hiç çalışmadı. ilk filozoflar faşistti ve bugün bile 2.500 yıl sonra 'batı medeniyetinin beşiği' yetersiz kalıyor. Roma imparatorları ve intikamcı, otoriter bir tanrı gerçek Avrupa başarı öyküleridir.
