The illusion of the fifth principle
"Granny D pointed out to me our national history of elitism, saying, 'We started up with white men and property, that's who could vote.' She added, 'We don't have a democracy, and we never have had a democracy.'"
Henry Alford, How To Live, p. 20
Unitarian Universalists like to puff their chests out and brag about their principles but take a look at how they practice.
Only the rich go to General Assembly and vote on stuff. The poor people can't afford to go. If you've got the money and resources you get to participate, but if you are a peasant forget it. GA is only for the Lords and Ladies.
