What makes us FEEL secure is not so much the objective security of a Constitution, or even the justice system but rather a sense of confidence in our ability to take care of ourselves.
Today, families and individuals are threatened by many things against which we are helpless: nuclear accidents, inflation, carcinogens in food, environmental pollution, war, increasing taxes, invasion of one's privacy by large organizations, and nationwide social or economic phenomena that may disrupt our desired way of life.
It is true that society is powerless against some of the things that threaten us like disease for example. But we can accept the risk of disease stoically. It is part of the nature of things, it is no one’s fault unless it is the fault of some imaginary, impersonal demon. But threats to individuals and society or corporations by government tend to be MAN-MADE and to hell with the constitution or laws.
For example, in Canada, as per the actions of Justin Trudeau and his liberal party animated by the NDP, and propagandized by the mainstream media, protesting, or becoming angry against the government’s policies cannot be permitted unless such protesting is in support of and NOT contrary to government policies.
If voters do, then, of course, the government shall freeze your bank accounts, and arrest you and if you are not vaccinated the government then makes sure through their supporters in Big Teck, Banks, and other Corporations that one loses her/his job in many instances, as we all have witnessed these past few years.
Voters and thus citizens of Canada have become strapped down by the government’s mandated restrictions and regulations that have finally come to the surface within society and frustrated many of one’s family; personal choices and impulses that have interfered dramatically with our lives within a free and democratic so-called country.
These are not the results of chance but are IMPOSED on us by other persons whose decisions society as an individual, is unable to influence. Consequently, we feel frustrated, humiliated, and angry especially when we realize that governments enact legislation or laws that are Ultra Virus and no one in government or in Corporations is held accountable.
WHY? And that question WHY is NO LONGER taught in Universities or high schools let alone at grade level or group discussions?
Perhaps that is why today's so-called elected representatives of the public at all levels of government are in fact elected on average by FEWER than 10% of ALL ELIGIBLE VOTERS.
And this does NOT represent democracy, in my view.
