“Tradition means giving a vote to most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead.” Chesterton goes on to say: “Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about. All democrats object to men being disqualified by the accident of birth; tradition objects to their being disqualified by the accident of death. Democracy tells us not to neglect a good man’s opinion, even if he is our groom; tradition asks us not to neglect a good man’s opinion, even if he is our father.”
In our perverted age, "The Party" ( TP-D) tends to be all in favor of giving the dead the vote, ncompletely secure in their knowledge that they vote 100% TP. They also find that little things like ciicizenship, not being a felon, being able to prove who you are, or essentially any restriction is too onerous to prevent the sacred vote.
