Thoughts from The Square: July 7, 2013

What is democracy really? The Goliath nation tells it’s people that votes count, that they have a voice and that the government is a squeaky clean representative.

The reality is that democracy today is a rigged system defended mercilessly for the, and on behalf of, the rich and the powerful. Egypt’s revolution scares the Goliath nation because it demonstrates the voice of the people truly. Egyptians have denied this “fair political system” and have discovered it is merely a facade valued by those in power who benefit from the majority suffering. Democracy is not meant to hold the corrupt in power. Democracy is meant to defend the vote of the people NOT votes that were bought with lies and bribes. True democracy died a long time ago for the United Snakes.
