Such a vulnerable American democracy: Anyone can intervene


For some time now, it has become clear to the world that American democracy is the most vulnerable institution on planet Earth. It turned out that anyone can intervene in it, and on the basis of the intervention, choose or not elect a president - so that the American people for as long as 4 years (at least) find themselves "one-on-one" with selected foreign "bots, hackers" and other destructive elements human.

Now American democracy is trying to "protect" itself from yet another "blow" - a blow from Chinese communism.

Almost any educational and cultural exchange programs are urgently blocked in the United States, since the US authorities see these programs as a terrible threat to the democratic world and to themselves in the first place.

The US director of national intelligence, Ratcliffe, said China is America's greatest threat. It turns out that the Chinese threat is "so terrible" for the United States that the same Ratcliffe called it the most dangerous in 75 years, having already forgotten that 35 years ago in the United States similar things were stated about the "Soviet threat."

In the author's program “However,” on Channel One, Mikhail Leontyev examines the issue of the “vulnerability” of American democracy, which, apparently, now needs to be kept exclusively in hothouse conditions.

    freedom in the American way. You can change your gender and sexual orientation. You can marry furniture and a penguin. But you have no right to even express your thoughts if they contradict dogma.
    Not so long ago, the favorite quote of liberals around the world was a phrase attributed in various variations to Voltaire: "I deeply dislike your opinion, but I will give my life for your right to express it." Now, people who call themselves liberals are increasingly making statements, the essence of which can be conveyed by the phrase: "Yes, I'll bite your throat for your words." Most surprising of all, such an aggressive imposition of the "only correct" political line is still called liberalism.

      The phrase belongs to Evelyn Hall, the author of the biography of Voltaire, she used it in her book in the early 20th century.
      But in fact, the principle of freedom of speech has never been interpreted as the ability to say anything without restrictions. There have always been limitations.

      Freedom in Russian. "In the International Classifier of Diseases of the 10th revision, which is still adhered to in Russia, the diagnosis F64.0" transsexualism "belongs to the section of mental diseases and conditions. After the doctor diagnoses F64.0" transsexualism ", the patient receives a certificate of indications for hormone therapy and surgical interventions and referral to a medical board. It will be required to change documents. "

      Well, who they themselves democratically eliminated is one thing, but when "all sorts of hackers" intervene - that's another.

        Where did 300 years come from? "The United States of America was formed in 1776 with the unification of thirteen British colonies that declared their independence. The War of Independence lasted until 1783 and ended in victory for the colonists."

        I don't even see any reason to argue with the fact that the United States behaves like an empire with a very aggressive foreign policy, but this does not negate their internal stability, since their civil war in the United States there has never been anything like that. In Russia, during this time, the collapse of the empire, two civil wars, the struggle between Beria and Khrushev, the confusion of Khrushchev, the collapse of the USSR

    Ha, the enemies of the communists have training manuals according to the same template. Likewise, the Russian enemies of the communists squeal that Stalin "intervened" in the elections in Germany in 1933 and "brought Hitler to power."

        Well, you shouldn't laugh: you forgot about the Dnieper-Bug canal! And the Poles knock out money and earthmoving equipment from the mattress mats to widen and deepen the canal. So, aircraft carriers will soon be already near Kherson, bypassing the Bosphorus.

    If they have such a weak democracy that everyone interferes in it, then this option is not suitable for Russia. Well, we don't like it when they interfere in our affairs.
