Democracy
is NOT the election
of an Emperor,
a King,
a Supreme Ruler.

Democracy
recognises the danger of ONE person
wielding ALL of the power,
and is not a free mandate
to legislate unchallenged.
(that’s a dictatorship)

Democracy
is not about belittling, sidelining or destroying
ANYONE who disagrees with you,
until all that is left
are cronies who are afraid
to disagree with you.

Democracy
has a constitution
that preserves the integrity of the system,
and has essential checks and balances,
to ensure future generations
can live in a humane society
that treasures political, religious and cultural freedom.

Democracy,
regardless of party line or ideology,
is a set of principles
which must be safeguarded,
because if the principles fall,
the society falls…
