Democracy always demands we defend it. It's high time we start asking democracy what it has done to defend us.
...And, of course, 'democracy' is an abstraction - indeed, a fluid and apparently open-ended abstraction; and, as such, 'democracy' cannot be 'asked' anything or be required to make any justification; and therefore 'democracy' lacks moral responsibility for anything, and is therefore evil!
