No, if I had intended republic, I would have written republic.

I meant democracy, as a synonym for freedon, which it is, and I’m VERY tired of being corrected by finucane individuals who think they’ve discovered and/or invented political science.

Democracy is a concept, republic is an entity.

But thank you anyway.

Sorry to misconstrue your intention; if hard to discern as it was written.

Though, I do not see those words as synonyms (IE: mob rule != Freedom); let alone Democracy being a concept. I would think the reverse (Republic being the concept).

Look forward to (hopefully) reading some elaboration on your thought process.
