Democracy is like sex - the messier it is, the better. There are few things as blandly dissatisfying as crisp, clean boinking, a nipple twist, a finish with a towel handy. Sure, you get off, but its meaningless.
Now, if you start with warm massage oil and, eight sweaty positions later, you end up exhausted in a puddle of all kinds of sticky or slick fluids, celebrating the possible combinations of cocks, cunts, assholes, mouths, and fingers, well, you might have experienced something close to cramping. Either way, you're gonna know you've been fucking. But if its not democracy, you haven’t been fucking at all, and infact you would realize that you were actually being screwed, upside down.
Real democracy is about challenging the powerful, calling out the liars, and encouraging dissent, knowing that these are things that strengthen the nation. But its just democracy, which can't even get a chance these days.
