Der griechische Philosoph Sokrates benannte drei gesellschaftliche Klassen innerhalb einer Demokratie:
Die Drohnen / Führer stehlen von den Reichen, behalten riesige Summen des Reichtums für sich ein und verteilen den Rest an die Armen.
Die Reichen können sich nicht verteidigen, da man sie wegen Veruntreuung gegenüber dem Staat anklagen würde.
Die Masse, sofern sie unter falschen moralischen Glaubensüberzeugungen und einer unzureichenden Ausbildung gehalten wird, wählt einen Führer und eröffnet damit die Gelegenheit für Tyrannei.

Politizisation of God
The affirmation that the source of these rights is a Creator and not a civil authority is an essential element of America’s founding documents, either explicitly, as in the Declaration of Independence, or implicitly as in the Constitution [LoC 710/720]. It is also passed on through America’s cultural and civic expressions, practices, and policy. […] The Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution both reflect the core American belief in the sovereignty of the people to choose their own form of government, as well as the conviction that the source of our rights is greater than that chosen government. […] The universe craves an absolute authority as Creator and Judge as a basis and source of law in order both to explain and to govern physical phenomena and social dynamics.

Violence expert and psychiatrist James Gilligan, M.D., Ph.D. screened 107 years of US American rulership given the
two party system consisting of the Republican Party and the Democratic Party.
To his own surprise he discovered that the Republican periods had consistently added to poverty and violence in the United
States whereas the periods ruled by Democratic president consistently lowered the unemployment and homicide rates.
His book Why Some Politicians Are More Dangerous Than Others, published in 2011, sheds light on his findings.

Empathy is expressed via two channels:
Dutch Primatologist Frans de Waal, Ph.D. (*1948) performed a "Fairness study" on benign, self-aware animals. He and his colleague Sarah Brosnan tested the sense of altruism and morality with chimpanzees (apes), dogs and birds, and elephants.
Note on the mirror self-recognition: Next to humans do great apes, dogs, elephants, European magpies (birds), individual owls, bottlenose dolphins, orcas, have the ability to recognize themselves in the mirror.
Reward division – Inequity aversion
When two capuchin monkeys – coopeative by nature and considered as the most intelligent New World monkeys – each received a cucumber treat, they performed the requested task in the lab many times in a row. If one of them was rewarded with higher valued grapes and the other one merely with cucumber – the latter felt cheated and soon started to protest by either refusing to further comply or to eat the cucumber.
Monkeys will accept and eat a piece of cucumber whenever they receive it, but not when they witness their partner getting a better deal. This reaction known as "inequity aversion" refutes the theory of profit-maximizing under all circumstances made by economy theorists who claim that greedy humans would invariably take whatever they can get.
According to De Waal, human nature is the result of "tamed contradictions."

Inherently weak democracies will last for 200-300 years on average.
| Every few hundred years throughout Western history, a sharp transformation has occurred. In a matter of decades, society altogether rearranges itself – its world view, its basic values, its social and political structures, its arts, its key institutions. Fifty years later a new world exists. And the people born into that world cannot even imagine the world in which their grandparents lived and into which their own parents were born. |

The American populace will have to decide whether to side with wisdom or sophomoric absurdity and fulfill Socrates' dire prediction that democracies eventually fall due to giving equal voice and votes to the nonintegrous and ignorant segment of the population (cal. 465). Historians point out that the average duration of a democracy is thus only usually two-to-three hundred years before the self-centered voters deplete the country of its own resources and political erudition.
