Just Think About It

Published June 19, 2018 by Nan Mykel

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
