"We have a war dictator who was not elected, he snuck in. so he punishes people that threaten him in any way, or even say something he doesn't like. It has no resemblance to democracy"

- Joni Mitchell

About this Quote

This quote by Joni Mitchell is an effective declaration about the current state of democracy. It speaks with the truth that a war totalitarian has taken control of a country without being elected, and is penalizing those who threaten him or speak out versus him. This is a clear offense of democratic principles, as it is not representative of the will of individuals. It is a stark pointer of the importance of democracy and the need to safeguard it from those who would look for to weaken it. It is a call to action for residents to defend their rights and to guarantee that their voices are heard. It is a reminder that democracy is not something to be considered given, and that it should be defended and safeguarded.
