    I am sure you were what is referred to as a “benevolent dictator.”

    PHANTOM: Good point…mob mentality could be another disadvantage. BTW, a neighbor recently had a cute stray doggie show up, and despite all reasonable efforts, no owner can be found. Neighbor doesn’t want to keep the dog, but has been outvoted by wife and 2 kids – pure democracy at work. :-)

    MARY WORTH: unhappy wife, unhappy life. As i see it, neither Toby nor Ian is completely wrong,,,or right. But they are going to need a mediator (Mary!) to help them sort things out.
    MARK TRAIL: Interesting that MT author James Allen is a fan of the late visual effects creator Ray Harryhausen – see Allen’s comments at ck a day or so ago.
    PHANTOM: @ david & JanCinLV – pure democracy, like in the film the gods must be crazy. A disadvantage…. no secret ballot.

    PHANTOM: The Bandar Tribe’s pure democracy reminds me of the tribe in the Kalahari (southern Africa) in the 1980 movie, The Gods Must Be Crazy.

    Excellent commentary, david. Thanks. As I recall, my Sociology 101 textbook stated that there are some basic prerequisites to a representative democracy, beginning with a well-informed voting population…and including such things as diffusion of power, political stability, an uncensored media, tolerance of dissent, etc.

    MT: There were some comments over at CK, so I ran with that and did a little research on my own. It looks like author James Allen is having some fun with this story. :-)

    MT: Did you notice that the professor in today’s panel 3 looks a lot like Faith Domergue?!

    MARK TRAIL: This arc has just taken a wild and fun turn! Copy & paste this link to a write-up about the 1955 movie, It came from beneath the sea, and scroll down to the Prof. Lesley Joyce character (Faith Domergue).

    PHANTOM: I notice you have a Brenda Starr avatar. I made mention of Basil St. John when the two candidates for chief were looking for orchids…of course Guran and Kipawa needed Ghost Orchids (a real plant that grows wild in locations that include the Fakahatchee Strand in SW Fla.), while BSJ needed the mythical black orchid for his serum. :-)
