Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

Margaret Mead

Art of the possible

Is democracy melting away with as little fuss as the polar ice? In what sense do people (demos) rule (-cracy) if political life reduces to occasional elections and a lot of comment? Can community be rebuilt in any other way than through local association?

The ancient Athenians were well aware of the danger to democracy from citizens who ignored public life and minded their families and their businesses, and they coined a term for them. They called these people idiots. Zakis Kounadis
