You know, I had to look that one up (Definition), but it still had no obvious relation to the topic wording or definition given... I started to post, aborted it, looked it up and started to ask a question, then aborted it all and went onto the next thread.

I'm sure I'm missing something...

@Khethil,
Khethil,

facture: the manner in which something (as an artistic work) is made

So that would mean the title is: Anarchism as the only approapriate manner in which democracy is made?

Why can't people just write simply in plain English words? I think it's because they want to appear clever, but what's clever about saying something in a way no-one understands?

How about 'anarchism is the only legitimate form of democracy'??

It's the ultimate democratic value but representative democracy is more practical and more in tune with human nature. Values conflict and need to be authoritatively allocated. Some people are leaders and others need to be led. Get rid of big government and on the one hand lose the ability to make group decisions, on health, education, waste collection etc, while on the other, have smaller gang based pseudo-governments form and have no relatively objective criteria for the use of force.

iconoclast.
