A Greek invention, democracy is highly overrated. For starters, it never worked in Greece. The first philosophers were fascists and, even today, 2,500 years later, the 'cradle of Western civilization' remains an incompetent state. Roman emperors and a vengeful, authoritarian God are the true European success stories.

Interestingly, it's the imperfection that makes things beautiful, even though this viewpoint may seem labyrinthine. Absolute perfection is often unattainable in reality, and yet so many imperfect things can be breathtakingly beautiful. So it must be that either the Perfection is overrated, or that our Imperfections must be making us so unique - and hence most beautiful. I like what Marilyn Monroe said decades ago: "Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." So, go ahead and celebrate your differentiating differentness - including the imperfections that make you so beautiful.

Loyalty is neither outdated nor overrated. Loyalty is still very much in fashion, although it's getting scarce in todays fast paced world. There is no grey area for loyalty, because it is either black or white, i.e. you are either loyal or not. And money can't buy loyalty, a hard fact that many corporates are realizing after losing good loyal workforce, and when being left with greedy ladder climbers. Loyalty pays, in long run - always!
