Democracy is clearly over-rated

That’s the conclusion I’ve reached after careful consideration of the evidence. Exhibit 1 – a public vote on the In Our Times Greatest Philosopher, via Radio 4.. Karl Marx. Exhibit 2 – a public vote on the World’s Top Public Intelluctual, via Prospect Magazine.. Noam Chomsky. Exhibit 3 – a panel of experts select the Philosopher/Man of the Decade, via Men’s Health magazine.. Homer Simpson! [also here]. “Homer no function beer well without.” I rest my case.
