Your description of the Soldiers of Density (not a typo) is spot on but I'd take issue with the last line. It has everything to do with the general populace.
Your vote is democracy divided by the number of voters. It's the individual's responsibility to educate him/herself on what casting that vote for a certain candidate and party entails. Too many people don't bother to do that, either because they're too lazy, misguided or just plain stupid. If people are going to vote for Mickey John because he's the Fianna Fail candidate and make no allowance for the fact that the same guy is a shady-dealing, half-educated, slimy moron who you wouldn't like to see your daughter dating, then they shouldn't be surprised if their country goes pear-shaped when Mickey John gets his greasy paws on the levers of power.
It's as simple as 2+2. Fianna Fail has the potential to be a party capable of good government. It has some good TDs, like John McGuinness. But men like McGuinness don't get anywhere because they won't be cannon-fodder for people who they know are intellectually inferior. After years of being in power and being corrupted by its associations with well-heeled knackers and maladministered by corrupt leaders and ministers, the party is now ethically, morally and intellectually destitute. It needs to go into the outback to re-invent itself. It needs to forget about power and fix what's gone wrong in its own heart and soul.
Until it does that it should remain a political pariah.
Good, accurate post and to clarify, what I was saying (badly, obviously) is that in in the FF view, sovereignty is their total perogative. To them, it does not relate to the populace.
Thank you for highlighting my lack of clarity and in doing so, eloquently completing the thrust of my post.
