Humans have turned to religion and to science for answers about the vast, mysterious world we live in. Neither science nor religion however have succeeded in guiding humanity to a healthier, kinder engagement with each other and the planet.
Paradoxically mainstream science and religion considered to be polar opposites, have fundamental similarities. While we can argue that both have contributed to humanity, both have also been manipulated in service of agendas that are dangerous to people and planet. The pious attitude towards science that justifies exploiting and damaging life in order to learn about it, is as dangerous as any organized religion that justifies oppression in the name of an abstract God.
Deconstructing Democracy was written as a response to global events and to a series of “democratic elections” across the world that ushered into power, governing parties increasingly antagonistic to the so called democratic foundations of freedom, equality and justice. Scanning the record of democratic countries worldwide, it was hard to identify any one country that could truly shine the democratic values they claim to uphold. All seemed, to some extent or another, to have sold out to incentives of profit and power and the exploitation of people and planet. And yet, mainstream conversations continued to idealize democracy as the royal road to healthy governance. The dissonance between the ideal and the real catalyzed this exploration into the fundamental flaws of the democratic system.
