Can the retreat of democracy be reversed? : Comments

By Alon Ben-Meir, published 23/11/2021

I do not expect revolutionary and immediate measures to be adopted at the summit to save democracies from their rapid erosion in so many countries.

Alon ben Meir pretends to be a defender of democracy, when he in fact an opponent of democracy. Alon is a defender of the idea that democratic countries must (incredibly) not live up to their own Constitutions. Constitutional law is the very foundation of any democratic countries law which in can not be overridden by party politics. How on earth the filthy rich bureaucrats in Brussels, who are represented in a "European Parliament" chaired by elite politicians not directly elected by any national electorate, was ever able to get any government to sublimate it's own constitution is, beyond me.

But if they managed that atrocity in Europe, then no wonder European parties support gun control.

In a democracy, changes to a national constitution can only be done by plebiscite, usually requiring a very clear majority of support. Somehow the elites have disenfranchised the populations of entire nations and now demand submission to whatever definition of "human rights" that they choose to define. Bugger that.

Thank God that first Britain, and now Poland, is standing up to these new European authoritarians. The other East Europeans nations are not far emulating Poland, as these countries already have experience in being subjugated by a monolithic bully that tried to impose it's will on their resisting populations.

The threat to democracy comes from elitist bureaucrats, academics, and a fake news press employing "journalists" like Alon ben Meir who prosper by pushing the elitist woke agenda, to curry favour with their rich corporate employers.

Identity politics will kill democracy. Which is exactly what the socialist left want. They dream of a supposedly utopian society like China, where the "intelligent" people like themselves get to tell the dummies, who make up the rest of the population, what to do. That so many rich people see advantages in such a system for themselves, is probably because they are dumb enough to think, that by hook or by crook, somehow they will end up seizing the reins of power from the ideologues.

Interesting question Alon, and very hard to answer.

It can, but we need to call out all the divide and rule, extreme right-wing groups rather than pandering to their lunacy as the first and obvious threat to democracy! If they don't like majority representation?

Allow them to leave then cancel their passports! I mean they are the fifth columnists beavering away to remove or kill everything that's decent in a civilised society!

So, invite them to leave and when they do, rescind all the rights they want to remove from the rest of us! Seems only fair?

Muslims have murdered 250 Australians.

The so called "far right" have murdered no Australians.

The far left is leading the charge to divide our nation through identity politics. They are teaching our kids that there are 187 sexes. They are enacting legislation to ban free speech. And they are teaching our kids that everything that goes wrong with western society is all the white man's fault.

And who is Alan B. afriad of? The far right.

Brilliant logic.

The retreat of democracy (more accurately the driving out of democracy) cannot be reversed unless we want it to be; and the drones donít even know that it is disappearing. So, the answer is probably Ďnoí. Who among us even knew there was Summit for Democracy?

I donít know if anyone from Australia is attending, but we should be concentrating on own sliding democracy, and not relying on global, corrupt organisations (e.g the UN) to tell us what to do.
