Then there’s the Referendum Jesus the way the truth and the life shirt. Another terrible decision, followed by an even worse implementation. The reason it was a bad idea comes down to a very popular misunderstanding of “Democracy” and what it actually entails. Moreover, when you look at the implementation of Democratic Rule in fully developed, democratic nations, I personally struggle to identify who “The People” really are, how much authority do common people actually wield over their day to day lives, and if that’s a good idea at all. Well not quite. First off, this method is not guarantee that the outcome is the best possible decision for the majority of people. Nor does it guarantee fairness, as people are easily swayed by incentives, misinformation, and social cues. And above all, it doesn’t outline who actually gets a say and how the conflict is framed. After all, it isn’t very practical to have the entire population of a country vote on every decision that gets made.
They are specimens of plants that would normally grow much larger, but because they have been diligently pruned and trained for their entire lives, they appear like a tiny version of a much older, more weathered tree. If the tree were not constrained by the small pot and regular root and limb pruning, there’s no reason to think that the plant wouldn’t grow to full size. Since this treatment cannot limit the size of the leaves, to keep the trees proportionate, bonsai are usually evergreen trees with small needles, such as juniper or yew, or deciduous trees with very small leaves. Boxwood and crepe myrtle are popular choices for deciduous bonsai. For the same reason, trees with large fruit are less desirable, so crab apples are preferred over cultivated apples. Because the trees are basically just very tiny versions of the same species on a large scale, traits that make a tree look older are also very desirable, such as rough bark and being amenable to having the limbs twisted and gently held in place for years at a time during training.
