enterprise process versus democratic process

en·ter·prise [en-ter-prahyz] Show IPA noun
a project undertaken or to be undertaken, especially one that is important or difficult or that requires boldness or energy: To keep the peace is a difficult enterprise.
a plan for such a project.
participation or engagement in such projects: Our country was formed by the enterprise of resolute men and women.
boldness or readiness in undertaking; adventurous spirit; ingenuity.
a company organized for commercial purposes; business firm.

In the democratic process, the people DO nothing, expecting their political wishes to be fulfilled by government. But the government will not provide liberty for them; it has no liberty to give. It will give them just the opposite, no matter how much democratic process there is.

The conduct of liberty is an enterprise process. But this has been completely forgotten in the avalanche of democratic socialism. Now it is like explaining electricity and magnetism to aborigines. Meanwhile I've been operating under the assumption there was a better understanding of this, when in fact, "nobody" has a clue as to what I'm talking about.

So...I think I will proceed with discussions mostly in these terms, until there is a basic understanding of this truth.

Without spending the time to structure the information to the argument, here is some more pertinent background information:

A company is an association or collection of individuals people or "warm-bodies" or else contrived "legal persons" (or a mixture of both). Company members share a common purpose and unite in order to focus their various talents and organize their collectively available skills or resources to achieve specific, declared goals. Companies take various forms such as:
  * Voluntary associations which may be registered as a Nonprofit organization
  * A group of soldiers
  * Business entity with an aim of gaining a profit
  * Financial entities and Banks
A company or association of persons can be created at law as legal person so that the company is itself can accept Limited liability for civil responsibility and taxation incurred as members perform (or fail) to discharge their duty within the publicly declared "birth certificate" or published policy.
Because companies are legal persons, they also may associate and register themselves as companies - often known as a Corporate group. When the company closes it may need a "death certificate" to avoid further legal obligations.

Notice below, the glaring absence of "political" in the disambiguation or enumeration of "enterprise"

  In this context, I would say that democracy is to enterprise kind of like capitalism is to materialism. I often suggest to people who think they are opposed to capitalism, that capitalism is just the freedom to buy and sell without outside interference. What you choose to do with that freedom is up to you. Lots of people seem to think capitalism automatically means, or requires, materialism, big corporations, consumerism, and so on, but it does not. You can choose to climb the corporate ladder, or you can choose to live a bohemian lifestyle.

  Similarly, I would describe democracy as simply a system wherein people are allowed to choose some from among their number to represent them and make decisions in their name. What people choose to do in the context of such a system is up to them. It is not automatically the case that people will choose to do nothing and just expect their political wishes to be fulfilled by government. All else being equal, democracy is in fact *more participatory* than lack of democracy.

  Enterprise, meanwhile, is not automatically good either. Tyranny can also be an *enterprise* process (e.g. "an enterprising young colonel, Moammar Qadafi, seized power in Libya").

Yes. and obviously, we don't want to leave the enterprise unattended, to be taken up by unfavorable forces. Libya is a good example of the result. Democracy eventually become inconvenient and the playing field distorted to favor the enterprise.
