“(Democracy) can be worse than a dictatorship, because it has face of giving you a choice, when in reality you don’t have one. And that pacifies people – when they shouldn’t be pacified.” – Syrian Girl

    We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religions destroy morals, and our banks destroy the economy.
