Why Vote?

Posted by Heather C. Williams at Jun 11, 2017 07:01 PM |

Democracy, government, fascism, theocracy, oligarchy, autocracy,

There are many forms of government. The word "GOVERN" comes from the Latin word gubernare which meant "TO STEER". Individuals do not necessarily need to be steered when they are going about their own personal business. However, people do need to be steered when there are alot of them in the same place, sharing the same air, water, land, resources, etc.

Democracy is a form of government in which the POWER of "steering" the issues, is in the hands of the people and they express their power through voting. 

There are many other forms of government where power is NOT in the people. For example: Theocracy (priests rule), Autocracy (absolute power in one person), Fascism (total control of people, promotion of cultural values and eradicating foreign influence), Oligarchy (power in hands of a few families or corporations), Plutocracy (power in the hands of the wealthy), Dictatorship (Power in one person, usually oppressive), Monarchy (power in hereditary figure such as a king), Communism (the state owns and operates industry for the people).

The POWER to steer (govern) your own life lies deep within you. Come take a Prosperos class and learn more about your True Identity as Consciousness. Contact Heather Williams.
