The Illusion of Democracy

Source: Freeman’s Perspective
by Paul Rosenberg

“However much hold democracy has had in the past, it clearly hasn’t held over the past two years. Our daily lives are ordered by edicts, not by democratic processes. National, state and local potentates have locked down their populations, demanded them to cover their faces and ordered them to accept untested and sometimes dangerous medical treatments. They’ve forbidden alternative treatments. They’ve sent their policemen to breakup religious gatherings. We’ve all watched these things, day by day, for almost two years. This was not done by votes in legislatures, it was done by executive orders, without checks or balances. We can describe that as dictatorial or as tyrannical, but we cannot call it democratic. It simply is not.” (11/20/21)
