"I protest, therefore I am."
Democrates.

"Squawk!" said the crow, and then made space.

That's an ominous name... It must mean 'people-rule'. The name is a protest in itself, whether he took it upon himself or if he was named by his parents.

When someone questions democracy people ask what the alternative would be, usually "who would rule, you?". They always think that a human must rule, and to some extent I suppose that that is right, however they cannot imagine that we're all ruled by something outside of us. God, nature, conditions.

I think the correct one against the one by Descartes "I think therefore I am" should be "I don't think therefore I am"
Democrates was a great man philosophically, I think he was the man who lived in a barrel. One day a wealthy man asked him "Is there anything I can do help you?" he replied "Yes, step out of the way you are stopping the sunlight."
