Just Think About It

If an individual wanted to destroy a democracy, what would he do?

Maybe you can come up with your own list. Feel free to add to mine:    

Strengthen our enemies?

Weaken our allies?

Refuse to protect our elections?

Use his influence to pad his pockets?

Weaken public school education?

Lie?

Cheat?

Destroy checks and balances?

Restrict workers’ pay?

Blatantly appoint termites to the system?

Lionize despots?

Strip power from our democratic institutions?

Actively harm the weak, the poor, non-whites, all minorities except the one percent?

Immolate trust in democracy?

Castrate the power of the people?

Sacrifice survival of the planet for short term gratification?

Put babies and children in concentration camps?

Replace love with lust?

Withdraw from the U.N. Human Rights Council in a pique?

Poison the milk of human kindness?

That’s what a traitor would do

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.

  3. Lovely post Nan. Listen, you’ll notice weird ‘likes’ on your comments or other people’s comments and even your spam folder inundated with weird comments. Their web addresses all end in a XYZ. Just ignore these, WordPress is working on it.
