Perhaps you mean any mom's nurturing.

Eventually, such systems will be put in place, but not in the way most imagine.

 We don't possess any democracy, we never did.

"...But the roots of the problem are deeper than the political process: the lack of democracy is built into the fundamental structures of a capitalist economy.

Democracy means “the rule of the people”. Capitalism means the rule of the market. Between those two concepts lies a gulf that can’t be bridged by any number of patriotic songs and firework displays.

A capitalist economy, based on private property, divides society into those who own and those who don’t: those who decide and those who obey. The first, most fundamental decisions that can be made in society – what to do with the tremendous wealth and technology that exists in the world – are made with no democratic oversight at all."

Democracy is only a transient situation.
As a rule of mindless and yet entitled mob it cannot possibly last long.

Democracy is the rule of the mob which is why the Founders didn't install it as the form of government that we have. I thought they taught basic civics in high school but apparently not.
