Ai vs AI: Is true democracy possible?

Ai Weiwei: The issue of democracy has always been a paradox. True democracy has never existed in human society. The aspiration is to find a balance among powerful interest groups that influence democracy. In the current political climate, democracy is a façade everywhere in the world and under all social circumstances.

Artificial Intelligence (AI): Achieving true democracy, where every citizen has an equal and direct say in decision-making, is challenging. Many modern democracies involve representative systems rather than direct governance by the people. *Source: ChatGPT

Cecilia Biondo: Not without true teaching and informations

Ad: I believed in it until October 9th! My rose tinted glasses ripped off. Leaders are merely puppets, humanity sold to the highest bidder and the people have no say! There is no such thing.

Jacob Canet-Gibson: Impossible and also not what we should be aiming for. A stateless anarchist society is achievable and should be the goal.

Debra Hunter: ?

Andrew N Furst: It depends on what possible means. To me the consequences of democracy are what we need to be examined. The question may infer that is is automatically desired. But I don't believe that on face value. Of the various social contracts (excluding, by definition, anarchy), democracy appears to be the most volatile and oppressive to a minority. In the US, the democratic republic has shown us the complexity of forming a majority, which is encouraging to a minority, but there are also indicators to the contrary (e.g. purity tests for support of a particular political candidate). I'd also be curious on where a pure democracy would land on national defense and other public goods. Finally from an economic perspective, what would be the impact on capitalism? Would it strengthen the power of money to corrupt government or would it impede it? I imagine pure democracy is possible. But I'm not sure it is better.
