Democracy -- Meaning Rule by Apes
Enough already -- let's just vote.
Some of you have expressed dismay over the title of these entries -- "How can you denigrate democracy by calling it 'Rule by Apes?'" But, we have a few questions for those who believe in evolution -- like, "If we have indeed descended from Apes, how can 'democracy' be anything but rule by Apes?" Or, "If we have indeed descended from Apes, how can there not be the possibility -- nay, probability -- that there will be yet another species, that may appear quite suddenly, that will be superior to what we now call, 'Men?'" Or, and this can never be touched upon, but here-goes anyway, "If we have indeed descended from Apes, how is it not possible -- nay, probable -- that there are some of what we call, 'Men,' that are superior (i.e., further evolved) than others that we still insist on calling, 'Men?'"
You see, this entire experimental form of governance is set upon the ridiculous notion that 'All Men are Created Equal.' As some report, this has been scientifically proven to be patently false. We have not been created -- equal, or otherwise. So, how is it that all "men" should receive equal rights under the law or equal standing in the voting booth? When superiority of some "men" over other "men" is as natural as losing your tail and developing an opposable thumb. All we are doing is marking time until the appearance of the Uber-mensch -- an idea introduced at the end of the 19th century that gained popularity in Germany in the late 30's to great shouts of, "Oh, my God." Or was it, "Oh, my random, meaningless universe?"
Note: The term "men" appears above in quotations not to emphasize sex, but rather species and should more appropriately and scientifically and rationally and objectively be replaced with the word, "Apes." But, we don't let "Apes" vote, so, "men" it is. For some reason. Shammadamma.
P.S. -- we are also looking for a pro-abortion writer to defend the constitutionally mandated fact that unborn children are not endowed with a few inalienable (that is English for incapable of being alienated, surrendered, or transferred) rights, like life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We are not sure if we have ever read the treatise that established that these particular little apes do not have the right to life, or the right to liberty, or the right to pursue happiness, but we're sure it must have been written and reviewed by the learned Justices of the Supreme Court and we would like to have it all spelled out for us here at InstaPunk.
