The ruthless game of democracy
The game is played everywhere.
Anywhere in the World, at any given time:
It is ethical that you fight, fight strong and win.
Eat or be eaten - Darwin observed and mused.
Game: Standing log.
It is a simple enough game played on the beaches of these idyllic islands.
The objective is to stay in power, as long as you can.
Competition is fierce, and constant.
There are few rules - Everyone has a chance to have a go:
Women against men.
Tall against short.
Brain against body.
In a true democracy, fighting should be encouraged.
However, it is a wish that everything should be transparent.
It never is. It never was.
